Music Website News
with Keith Bramich
Playing music for the global community
World Music Radio (listen now whilst you're reading
this) is celebrating the New Year (and decade, century etc.) with World
Music 2000, a live internet webcast, lasting 24 hours, to celebrate
the arrival of midnight in all 24 time zones, beginning at the International
Date Line with territories such as the far east of Russia, New Zealand and
some Pacific territories. As midnight arrives in each time zone, the station
will play music from countries in the zone.
The station asks you to email your good wishes for listeners all over
the world to firstname.lastname@example.org
(or phone the studio direct on +1 619 308 1875). Your messages will then
be broadcast during the appropriate hour.
There's more information about this novel concept on the World Music Radio website.
Online Music Magazines
If you have some extra spare time over the imminent holiday season, you
might like to know about some new online music magazines.
BBC Music Magazine
is launching a new website this month, December 1999 (which means sometime
during the next few days), to include a new daily news service and the magazine's
library of CD new releases, including the back catalogue, and online purchasing
of CDs, books, concert tickets, videos and audio equipment. Keep your eyes
peeled, and remember that you read about it first at Music & Vision!
Soundtrack Magazine is one of the oldest publications - Luc Van De Ven
has published it for nearly 25 years. A new site is being launched, and
a preview edition is
available now. It includes a previously unpublished interview with Ron
Goodwin and a scoring session interview with Don Davis about House on
A magazine from India - called simply The Music Magazine gives a different perspective on the
music world and SPW's big list of journals and magazines is worth a look for many
more journals, although links to some of the sites are broken. Don't forget
us at Music & Vision, by the way
... our normal service continues right through the Christmas and New Year
season, and we're about to launch some new regular features.
