Happy Birthday MIDI!

It's 30 years since the development of technology that allowed synthesisers and drum machines to be connected to computers - and since then MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) has revolutionised the world of music recording.

The Secret Life of the Warm-Up DJ
The people on the turntables paying their dues as musical fluffers to the star turn.
Depending on how you look at it, being a warm-up DJ can mean a number of things: a foot on the bottom rung of a soon to be climbed ladder, a humiliating experience of having your great taste in music ignored,  an opportunity to be part of a night’s great programming, or simply, a clock-in, clock-out way to get some bucks.
Auckland-based DJ Barnie Duncan speaks to a variety of people who have paid their dues doing the warm-up set, including Tina Turntables and record shop owner and promoter Cian O’Donnell.  We also find out what it is like to warm up crowds of a different nature… like at a strip club, or a sports ground.
