SOUNZ Jazz Recording Project 2019

The SOUNZ Jazz Recording Project aims to create high quality recordings (audio and video) of original jazz compositions by New Zealand jazz composers. The recordings will be made between 9am and 5pm on Thursday 5 December, at the Adam Concert Room, New Zealand School of Music, Victoria University of Wellington. Following the final editing process, the recordings will be made available for streaming on the SOUNZ website and embedding on the composer’s website.

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.

Call for Proposals
We welcome proposals from New Zealand jazz composers and ensembles.  Proposals for the Jazz Recording Project should be emailed to by 5pm Monday 14 October 2019. The selected project will be announced at the end of October 2019.
