SOUNZ Jazz Recordings Project
Ngā Hopuranga Puoro Tautito a SOUNZ
The purpose of this project is to create films of jazz compositions by New Zealand jazz composers. These films are promoted and made available online as part of Resound. The SOUNZ Jazz Recording Project, established in 2020, aims to create high quality recordings (audio and video) of original jazz compositions by New Zealand jazz composers. The project consists of a grant of $2,000, which is awarded to a professional jazz ensemble to perform and record in Wellington a set of 30 minutes of original jazz compositions, which have not been recorded professionally before. Following the recording project, these films of music by New Zealand jazz composers are promoted and made available online.
