Canberra Music Producer Wins International Award
Canberra record producer, David Pendragon, has been presented with the
prestigious International Online Music Awards â€œProducer of the Yearâ€
honour. The IOMAs are the single biggest international awards event of
it’s kind where artists and industry professionals are given the
opportunity to show their respect and appreciation for the work of their
fellow peers. Over thirty four thousand nominations were received from
music professionals around the world for this yearâ€™s awards.
Mr Pendragon won his award for his work on the soon-to-be-released CD by
TribeWorld Ensemble entitled The Journey. The Journey has been in
production for over a year and features 32 musicians from around the
world, including Canada, USA, UK, Europe and Australia.
â€œWhat makes this album unique,â€ says Pendragon, â€œis that, with the
exception of the Canberra musicians, all the performers on this CD have
contributed their work via the internet. I believe this is the first
time an album has been produced by such a diverse group of musicians
solely using the internet as the means of communication. Itâ€™s the
worldâ€™s first internet band.â€
Pendragon was also short-listed for 9 other IOMA awards, including: Best
Artist, Best Male Solo Artist, Best Instrumental Artist, Best Composer,
Best Keyboard Player, Best Collaboration, Best Sound Engineer, Best
Artist Web Site and Best Feature Writer.
Other members of the TribeWorld Ensemble who were short-listed for
awards include: Donovan Gall (ACT) – Best Drummer and Tracy Lundgren
(Newcastle) â€“ Best Songwriter, Best Female Vocal.
â€œThese awards and nominations,â€ says Pendragon, â€œand the enthusiasm with
which the international members of the group have joined this project,
highlight the world-class quality of the musicians we have in Australia
and right here in Canberra.â€
David Pendragon will be a guest of the National Film and Sound Archive
on 24 February, where he will present a seminar on the use of the
internet to assist in the production of a music CD.
David Pendragon will explain the tools, networks and techniques required
to participate in a global musical network in a public lecture at the
National Film & Sound Archive on February 24th 2006 at 6 PM.
The Journey will be released worldwide in 2006.
