WindStreams—The Australian Wind Music Portal
Arcadia Winds aims to change the way people watch, listen to and purchase Australian wind music. Our dream is to allow performers, composers, students, audiences, presenters and broadcasters world-wide to access this music with a click of a button–we are developing a groundbreaking new resource to make that happen.
It is our belief not only that Australian wind music is inherently valuable, but that there is a real hunger for it among audiences and performers. This belief is supported by the fact that wherever we go, we are constantly asked by people in Australia and overseas where to go to listen to or purchase this music. We’d finally like to be able to give a clear and simple answer to this question, to give much deserved exposure to the music we love, and to enable people to enrich their lives with it.
WindStreams is a website where users can stream performances of wind music by Australian composers, purchase scores and related resources, and watch interviews with composers and instrumentalists about their work. It is currently in the site-building stage–feel free to browse our current video library and provide us feedback about what else you’d love to see!
We’d like to say a massive thank you to all the donors to this project. Particular thanks go to Creative Partnerships Australia and the MATCH Lab program, and to the 51 individuals who so generously donated to our crowdfunding campaign.
