Music in Museums
This 90-minute PD features an introduction to what music in museums can be and explores matters of intellectual property, APRA, ways of engaging/commissioning and contracting musical composition.
The main and more exciting part is an hour workshop with museum music guru: Michael Mills of Heaps Good productions. Michael has composed music for many museums including the South Australian Museum, Maritime Museum Port Adelaide and many other national cultural institutions. Michael can be easily googled for reference and has released many recordings of his work.
The final ten minutes will be dedicated to Question-and-Answer forum for all participants.
The program will be facilitated by Patrick Watt and he will be supported by representatives of Sovereign Hill, Questacon, HTAV, Auckland Museum, WA Fire & Emergency Services Heritage Dept and Come Alive Festival, Canberra.
