Thursday 20th February : SYDNEY #CDR SESSION - Bring Your Homemade Tunes

  • 107 Projects 107 Redfern Street, Sydney, Australia (map)

CDR SYDNEY IS BACK in 2014 at 107 Projects now with the added punch and clarity of the legendary Hi Jack Sound System! Also the DEBUT SCREENING of ALL-EARS documentary. Free entry and all are welcome.

The sessions are about sharing new, unreleased music and works in progress, whether artists are signed, unsigned, world-famous or, as yet, undiscovered.

CDR has been instrumental in developing careers; SBTRKT, Maya Jane Coles and Eglo Records among others. The competition Dimensions Festival ran in conjunction with CDR (2013) uncovered an array of new artists and due to its success will return in 2014. CDR has run for the past 10 years at London’s Plastic People, under the leadership of founder Tony Nwachukwu and also runs regularly in Berlin, Sydney and occasionally in Amsterdam.

CDR is a not-for-profit organisation. The concept itself is simple; sessions are FREE OF CHARGE and allow producers to receive the right combination of constructive criticism and support from their peers, industry experts and producers they value.

CDR's SYDNEY Session on Thursday 20th Feb will include the debut screening of inspiring beat-making documentary "All-Ears" featuring interviews with luminary LA beatmakers Kutmah, Ras G, Dam Funk, Georgia Anne Muldrow and many more, as well as our first "Open CDR" section where we will hear tracks that we have received via our online submissions page.

Music makers can submit in person with a CD or USB, to be aired on the Hi Jack Soundsystem during the night. Those living in regional areas can also participate in our "Open CDR" section of the night by submitting their tracks online. Songs can be uploaded in advance at Tracks must be uploaded as WAV or AIFF files with the name of the artist, the track title and email address as the filename.

The brilliance of the global concept is that content is shared around the world, with video footage, interviews, tracks and photography from all countries featured on the CDR Projects website. Innovative and inspiring music played at the sessions is also shared, with a selection from CDR Australia travelling to the UK, Germany and vice versa. One minute a producer might be working away in their bedroom in Brunswick and the next minute their track is being played at Plastic People, while their interview is published alongside the likes of Henrik Schwarz!
