The Miami sports scene is arguably most famous for its NBA representatives Miami Heat, or maybe its Miami Dolphins NFL team.
But watch out for the new Beckham MLS team...
Plan BETA & NJL leveraged the ability to access exclusive content for the festival repertoire with Fiji, Salmonella Dub & Tomorrow People to gain preferred supplier for production on the prime Wellington City Events.
"Increasing production values was the first goal & we have been able to double the equipment & quality previously provided for the same budgets as they have had in the past." says Production Manager Aaron Hobman.
The programme for Waitangi Day & Pasifika is high value & has been a coup for the Council - mainly due to the efforts of Event Manager Suzanne Tamaki. To secure Fiji for Pasifika & Salmonella Dub for Waitangi Day - with the seminal Dub band of Aotearoa playing to thousands for their 25th birthday reunion events & due to play the Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast... simply amazing!

Salmonella Dub launch their 25th single to celebrate 25 years.
World She Waits
Driving Aunt Daisy to Meet Nino's People was the initial working title for Salmonella Dub’s 25th single
World She Waits launched to radio this week to celebrate the beginnings of the bands 25th birthday.
The tune became a collaboration with Nino Birch from Beat Rhythm Fashion, the band’s choice of an influential artist to represent them at the New Zealand Music Awards this week. Unfortunately, that never was to be as Recorded Music NZ rejected the idea stating that the ‘show producer’ had never heard of the iconic Wellington group. Because of that, Beat Rhythm Fashion were deemed too obscure for the TV show demographic and Salmonella Dub stood down from accepting the ‘Legacy Award’.
“ The great Aunt Daisy was of course the famous NZ radio broadcaster from the 30's to the 60's. Like the Recorded Music NZ she was a fast talking sponsor-product-placer who was seriously lacking in knowledge and content. So during our writing mahi with Nino, Aunt Daisy became a cheeky euphemism for the Recorded Music NZ ;-)” Andrew Penman, Salmonella Dub
Aunt Daisy in Action in the 50’s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTdvpiHbO0s
Nino’s World She Waits lyrics were inspired by global issues, corporate greed and land right clashes both here in Aotearoa and with native American tribes affected by the Dakota oil pipeline project.
World She Waits backstory:
Dub snub! Salmonella Dub turn down Hall of Fame over clash with organisers | Stuff.co.nz Salmonella Dub praised as beat goes on after Music Hall of Fame snub | Stuff.co.nz
World She Waits will be released digitally in December 2017 and then physically on the band’s January 13th birthday coinciding with an anniversary show in their hometown Otautahi. This show features the return of Tiki Taane and Conan Wilcox, plus their good mates Fat Freddy’s Drop, Trinity Roots, Ladi6, Sunshine Soundsystem and Soulware. The track will also be released as the 25th single in a bundle of 25 radio cuts aptly named Commercial Grates to celebrate the band’s 25 years of music mahi in Aotearoa. Many of these cuts were never made available digitally when the band were under their licence contract with Virgin EMI. This is one of many issues the Salmonella Dub faced including EMI’s failed attempt at “Copy Control” on their multi platinum selling album One Drop East.

The Performance Arcade brings together visual arts and performance in a specially curated ‘exhibition-event’ of live art practices on Wellington Waterfront. An arrangement of shipping containers and scaffold structures provides a temporary architecture for this unique project, housing a bar space, a programme of live music and events, and new performance installations by NZ and International artists. Open 13 hours a day, this event is free to the Wellington public.
The Performance Arcade is an annual Live Art mini-festival and programme of free events located on Wellington Waterfront. Since its inaugural presentation in 2011, The Performance Arcade has become a highly anticipated event with an ever-increasing international profile. In 2014 the Arcade was presented as part of the prestigious New Zealand Festival.
Using a series of architecturally arranged shipping containers, The Performance Arcade creates a series of spaces for installation, performance art, sonic art, interactive media, forums and live music. Opening onto the bustling life of the Wellington Waterfront, these sites of encounter engage the public in contemporary art and performance practices outside the familiar constraints of gallery or theatre spaces. This free event is at once playful and engaging. It is a site of discovery and interaction, offering the public a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in relevant and new Live Art experiences.
The event is open for thirteen hours each day and is curated to offer activities that range in scale from small, personal artistic encounters to live music and AV installation performed under the night skies. The 2014 event involved 39 artists, 42 musicians and 24 crew. In 2014 close to 10,000 people experienced the Arcade over five days.

“InDigiNous Aotearoa : Virtual Histories, Augmented Futures”
New Zealand Māori artists working within digital environments
01 December 2017 – 20 January 2018
Opening Reception: December 01, 2017 from 8pm to 11pm
Where: Urban Shaman Aboriginal Art Gallery, 203-290 McDermot Ave. Winnipeg, MB
Artists: Reweti Arapere, Hana Rakena, Rachael Rakena, Kereama Taepa, Suzanne Tamaki, Johnson Witehira, Rangituhia Hollis
Virtual histories are a form of fictional writing that apply a ‘what if’ scenario to history. For example, ‘what if Christopher Columbus did not discover the Americas’, or ‘what if Able Tasman did not discover New Zealand’? Of course neither Columbus nor Tasman were responsible for discovering either of those lands, and the artists in this exhibition explore this idea of ‘virtual histories’ in relation to these types of so called ‘true histories’.
The artworks in this exhibition are made by seven Māori artists from Aotearoa New Zealand who use digital media to create real and virtual spaces for Indigenous knowledge. The exhibition includes a range of media from virtual reality and augmented reality artworks, through to video games, projection installation and 3D printing. Each artwork critiques dominate histories and perceptions of Indigenous peoples in Aotearoa New Zealand, and postulates on how different the world might be for Indigenous peoples in the future.
Exhibition curator Reuben Friend says, “the exhibition includes some of the leading figures currently working in Māori digital art and is a major chance to review how Māori digital media has advanced over the past ten years”.
The senior artist in the exhibition, Rachael Rakena uses projection mapping software to project digital images onto real world objects, blurring the line between real and virtual objects and experiences. Her most well-known major installation is held in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa and was exhibited in the Sakahan: International Indigenous Art exhibition in 2013. Rakena was one of the leading figures in the exploration of digital and online spaces for Māori art and culture in the early 2000s. Her early works opened the way for many of her peers in this show, such as Johnson Witehira, Kereama Taepa and Rangituhia Hollis who all use digital platforms as a space to teach and explore Māori knowledge systems.
One of the biggest concerns for these artists is the issue of appropriation and intellectual property rights. Photographer and textile artist Suzanne Tamaki uses fashion photography and augmented reality software to explore ways that Māori might express ownership over, and access to, cultural material held in museums and private collections around the world.
Tamaki’s works entitled Augmented Reality Taonga (ART) use pixel recognition technology to create digital 3D replicas of fake Māori artefacts collected by the National Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. These fakes taonga (precious objects) were made in England and were illegally sold back to museums in Aotearoa New Zealand under the pretence of being genuine originals. Tamaki’s digital replicas can be viewed on android and ios smartphones and are activated through coding embedded in her photographic works.
Sculptor Kereama Taepa goes one step further into full virtual reality environments to create sculptures in virtual space which can then be 3D printed and presented as physical objects. He calls the philosophical principle for this production method Whakapī (meaning to make like a bee). Taepa says that the construction of a beehive is an additive manufacturing process, where the bees essentially 3D print a home for their young using wax secretions from their abdomen. In this way Taepa reconsiders Māori creative concepts in order to make sense of his contemporary digital construction processes.
Urban Shaman Director Daina Warren says, “the exhibition is part of a conference at Winnipeg Art Gallery and Winnipeg University entitled ‘Radically Shifting Our Indigenous Futures Through Art, Scholarship and Technology. We are very fortunate to have these artists here at Urban Shaman to see how other Indigenous communities across the world are using new media to pass on Indigenous knowledge in the digital age”.

Salmonella Dub, legends of the NZ music scene are celebrating their 25th anniversary with three very special shows this summer, featuring the return of Tiki Taane.
These shows mark 25 years for the multiple platinum selling and award winning Salmonella Dub, and will be especially memorable with the featured return of Tiki Taane who worked with the band from 1996 until 2006.
Pioneers of Aotearoa’s Dub n’ Bass scene, Salmonella Dub have always pushed musical boundaries, taking a reggae foundation and fusing it with multiple genres to create a sound entirely their own.
Salmonella Dub’s impressive and very important place in New Zealand music history is undeniable - seven studio albums, three remix albums, a live album with the NZSO, four EP’s, and over 161 songs collectively achieving 10 x platinum across a catalogue that has sold over 600k worldwide, 270 + festival appearances, five Tui awards, and twelve Bnets awards all proving testament to this band's iconic status.
Founding member Andrew Penman says “We are preparing an iconic, audio-visual, bass heavy, back catalogue mash up with a super-abundantly full treasure chest of guests”.
Tiki Taane says of his welcome return “To be able to help my old band mates celebrate 25 years of Salmonella Dub is a glorious prospect and probably a once in a lifetime occurrence – no one will want to miss this”.
From their very first live appearance in 1993, to the forthcoming 25th anniversary tour, passion, creativity, energy, driving bass beats and pure joy are the signature hallmarks of one of New Zealand’s most successful bands.

Over the history of entertainment, each new media format to emerge has represented a step forward in immersion and presence.
Immersive video is arguably the culmination of this evolution, a media format in which consuming content is becoming indistinguishable from having real life experiences.
We've been making & developing 360° media content & delivery - & we're now the most prolific & effective 360° content producer in New Zealand. We’ve made innovative new media for over 20 years… we anticipate 360° immersive content & integrated augmented reality is a new paradigm in media.
Our team have extensive collective experience in concept, capture & delivery of technology & media systems & content; we are not an alternative to a conventional design or production company - we are nonconformist, schismatic & eccentric: & we enjoy what we do - we specialise in 360° media content production.
We predicted that 360° media content would become more accessible with social & commercial demands & as the technology advanced... we realised that the market would quickly demand effective production that could foresee the requirements of the audience & clients; develop a unique process for content production & creation; & deliver an effective product - not just a novelty.
So the task was to develop a methodology that fulfilled four essential elements:
