WildKat PR is delighted to be working with 7K!, the new neo-classical Hub launched by the independent label !K7 Records.

7K! is a new platform and home for neo-classical projects which will be supported by the in-house expertise and spirit of legendary music company !K7 records. 7K! will comprise a record label and label services collective, as well as sync and artist management divisions.

In the first quarter of 2017, the label will kick off its release schedule with the album ‘Endless’ by multi-instrumentalist and globally-renowned composer Luca D’Alberto. Last week, two concerts took place in Berlin at Silent Green, including one sell-out performance.

D’Alberto is a brilliant, mold-breaking musician who is already highly regarded on the classical scene, as both a multi-instrumentalist and composer. He is a favourite composer of directors such as Peter Greenaway, Wim Wenders and Fernando Arrabal. His upcoming album ‘Endless’ is the result of his decision to shake up his classical training into new charters, preferring instead to use his talents to create a more contemporary style of music that sees him exploring the pairing of electronics with acoustic instruments. ‘Endless’ was produced by Martyn Heyne (Tiny Ruins, The National) and Henrik Schwarz, and is preceded by the single ‘Wait For Me’, released in December.

Watch here the official video to “Wait For Me”, a love Story told only by hands.

WildKat PR is very much looking forward to bringing D’Alberto and his music to the music world with a focus on the German press.

Carolin, Director of the Berlin office: „We are excited to be helping prestigious !K7 records on their new launch of the neo-classical label 7K! We have already successfully worked on projects with neo-classical composers such as Max Richter and Chad Lawson, reaching out to new audiences with their modern sound. We look forward to supporting !K7’s growth in the German music industry through active press work and consultancy.“

Keep up to date with 7K! on the !K7 website and Luca D’Alberto on his website and on the WildKat PR blog.

2016 – what a year it has been! 

It’s been a year full of political and cultural changes and we look forward what 2017 holds in store. 

We have also had to adapt WildKat’s set up and services towards the current climate. Artists and organisations, as well as independent projects, look for even more value for money, and for smarter, more effective approaches towards reaching audiences. 2016 is the year we truly went into number crunching, exploring what and how coverage converts into ticket sales, which platform drives different types of traffic, what will guarantee a sell-out and what is worth an investment for the future. 

We have brought in a new set of Account Managers and created new roles to cater to a renewed interest in broader press and online targets. 

I am optimistic about 2017. Change always means opportunity. It means we are in motion, and the arts are the first place we will see that. I look forward to new pieces being created, new companies being formed and new ideas coming to fruition.

Thank you to all our partners, clients, journalists and the wonderful staff across all our WildKat offices. We finish the year on a high with our annual skiing trip to Austria! Let’s slide merrily into the New Year.

In 2016, WildKat PR continued to expand our roster with lots of diverse projects and campaigns, from Ancient Academy of Music to Metal’s production of Steve Reich’s Different Trains with the London Contemporary Orchestra. We also worked with a wide range of fantastic organisations on unique projects, including projects with The European Union Youth Orchestra, Help Musicians UK and Live Music Now. Also, across the Atlantic Ocean in our New York office, we began campaigns with the world-renowned The Cliburn and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.

WildKat

Here are some highlights from our fantastic year:

In Spring 2016, Sacconi Quartet and Sacconi Chamber Music Festival returned to WildKat, and it was another very successful year for them, highlights include a 5-star review by The Guardian and also an awesome review by Financial Times. They also premiered Jonathan Dove’s ‘In Damascus’, a brand new work for Tenor and String Quartet.

In Summer 2016, another year, another weird and wonderful set of Tête a Tête performances, including Toni Castells‘ ‘2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal?‘, which featured in The Guardian‘s top classical picks, and on BBC Radio 3: In Tune, amongst other outlets. They also ran six productions, forming part of the Cubitt Sessions at the heart of King’s Cross this year. Looking ahead to 2017, lots are going to happen in January with Tête a Tête, so keep reading our blog to follow their latest news!

In August, BitterSuite launched their crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter, and successfully reached their target. They were featured in Vice, and they also debuted in New York at Brooklyn Academy of Music in December.

In Autumn 2016, we worked with Metal Liverpool on Steve Reich’s Different Trains. We gained a huge range of alternative coverage, including The Sunday Times, live-streaming on Boiler Room, and BBC Radio 6 Music.

In Winter 2016, Ailie Robertson‘s classical debut single ‘Haven’ was a big hit, reaching No.2 on iTunes Classical Chart. She also made appearances on BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 3: In Tune.

The Academy of Ancient Music received a very strong set of reviews for our first concert with them, recording 4 and 5 stars.  They also continue to receive excellent reviews for their disc of music by Dario Castello, which proves to be increasingly popular following the concert and broadcast and is encouraging in supporting their aim to bring neglected music to a wider audience.  We now very much look forward to the release of the second volume in 2017.

wildkat-pr-front_cover-aam

Accentus Music also has had an incredible year with us, with over 50 pieces of coverage throughout the year, and several productions nominated in several categories for the International Classical Music Awards 2017, including a CD by the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and Alban Berg’s opera ‘Wozzeck’ DVD performed by Opernhaus Zürich. We look forward to further collaborations with Accentus in the new year.

We also had a great year with Dartington – this year’s festival saw musicians, writers and artists of all ages and abilities descend upon the beautiful medieval Dartington estate, to take part in courses, watch and participate in masterclasses, create new works, and attend concerts and performances, of which there were over eighty over the four week period!  We are excited to have the chance to work with them again for their International Summer School and Festival 2017, which promises to be just as, if not even more exciting.

Besides our usual Press and Promotion service, we are also developing a wider range of services. We introduced our full Social Media packages and more Creative Campaigns.

We have recently worked with ECC100, a vinyl-only record label founded by Lush, on their release of ‘Set in Stone‘, music inspired by ancient stone circles in Dorset, UK. As well as a press campaign, we also organised a creative campaign, inviting journalists and bloggers to travel on a journey through their senses, with fragrances created by Gorilla Arthouse, which were inspired by the music from the album, live performance from Simon Richmond and John Metcalfe, and the screening of a film by Patrick Dunn.

Now that the year is almost over, we are very much looking forward to announcing new partnerships in January 2017! To follow our latest news and updates, keep reading WildKat PR Blog, or follow us on our Facebook page and Twitter.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a great start to 2017!

Account Manager Victoria Cappelletti’s views on working as a PR in Paris and London: Differences, difficulties & evolution

Over one year ago I moved to London to start working at WildKat PR as an Account Manager. I had previously worked for two years in the music industry in Paris, at a major record label and also in an independent PR agency with a similar structure to WildKat.

Being aware of the stakes of promoting independent and emerging artists in Paris, I was curious to see and experience the differences between the industries, seeking new professional challenges and looking forward to tame British journalists.

As I had previously worked with UK and international clients, I already had an insight into some of the differences, however, after a year of working as a press officer in London, I was able to find distinctive quirks.

wildkat-pr-tower-bridge-eiffel-tower

In my opinion, big record labels and majors rule music industries. That’s the case in both the UK and France. Independent, alternative and emergent artists thus struggle (more) to rise and thrive with their art.

As the French government cuts budgets for culture, the media has to focus on bigger artists, or at least on the ones that will gain a more significant audience. I could see that they were sliding dangerously from programming artists that they are personally passionate about, to generating profit for the media. As someone who is, and has always been so passionate about music, spending entire evenings digging for unknown tunes on Soundcloud, it makes me quite sad.

My knowledge of the UK government’s decisions for culture (apart from Brexit which will have an important impact on diversity in my humble French opinion) is limited, but it seems quite obvious that there are way more opportunities for new artist, to perform but also to be featured in the media.

Regarding live performances, for example, maybe it comes from the fact that all things cultural don’t happen in central London, as it is in Paris intra-muros, but alternative, emergent, underground cultural opportunities blossom in zone 2 and 3, whereas it is almost impossible to make Parisians cross the city centre’s limits.

Hence, there is a profusion of music venues, from established concert halls to basements and Pizza Express, that allow emerging bands and underground composers to perform their music or art, get visibility and improve their talent.

It also seems that there are more channels and ways to promote artists in the UK.

For example, I was able to secure a piece in a national newspaper for my first campaign, whereas the journalist had never heard from me before, and my sharp French accent couldn’t fool anyone.

Of course relationships with the media are the key to being a good and efficient PR. But here in the UK, I’ve felt like journalists are more open-minded and if you pitch to them right, offering an interesting idea, they will say yes.

In France, it’s more difficult to offer something original, and journalists are not likely to respond to you unless they know you. Maybe it’s also the case here, but simply in my experience, it’s not.

I’ve learnt that here anything is basically possible, if you put enough creativity and resources into it. This is an integral part of the culture at WildKat and has taught me a new way to approach to PR. The French music industry is obviously still strong, and there are still great things to do – it just seemed to me that without a strong record label behind them, emerging artists had less chances to be promoted in media and programmed in a venue, even the smallest.

 

Note: Beyond the PR and media industry, I think the differences between the two countries are probably beyond business. It’s social, it’s a way of working, communicating, and thinking.

The UK has seen the birth of major underground musical movements such as punk, grime and trip-hop. It’s the home of beautiful weirdos, from Elton John to Boy George to David Bowie, among so many others.

wildkat-pr-david-bowie-vystava-berlinPhoto: DesignMagazin.cz

I believe that all these cultural developments and their leaders ‘used’ people’s minds to be more open, accepting, experiencing and enjoying alternative and underground music and art movements.

Generally, the UK is known for being a cool country, where people won’t judge you for your half-balled turquoise haircut, wearing shorts in January, or the music you are listening to. I’ve seen youngsters sing along to rock songs next to quiet old men in the pub.

I am not saying France is behind in terms of music – it has the 2nd best hip-hop scene, many other amazing weirdos and a new generation of artists that are now making their way across the Channel and beyond – for example, Christine & The Queens whom I’m always glad to see on billboards here in London.

wildkat-pr-christine-and-the-queens-refuse-proposalsPhoto: momo.works/ refuse proposals

We have a great new wave of music, which I think and hope will go far.

I believe Paris should open its ‘borders’ offer more exciting opportunities to emerging artists through reopening old venues, rehabilitating others, and take (some) inspiration in London’s music life’s landscape.

BBC launches project to discover works by women composers

BBC Radio 3 is beginning a project to uncover the lost works of women composers in a joint partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The aim will be to locate music by forgotten composers and record it by making use of the BBC’s orchestras and choirs.

What was Mozart’s last completed composition?

Today is the 225th anniversary of the death of Mozart on 5 December, 1791. Anyone unaware of the dramatic licence taken in the play and film “Amadeus” might think that the genius composed the last bars of his Requiem on his deathbed, but reality didn’t quite live up to that story.

How does the oldest piano in the world sound?

Bartolomeo Cristofori, the inventor of the piano, created the instrument around the turn of the 18th century. The first hard evidence of a piano in existence comes from an inventory of goods from 1700, in which it is referred to as a harp harpsichord.

WildKat PR is excited to announce our new client ECC100 Records!

Mark Constantine, founder of organic cosmetic company LUSH, had a feeling that vinyls would make their comeback when he founded ECC100 Records, a UK-based vinyl record label. He was right – vinyls have reached groundbreaking sales figures this year. They take us back to when music was combined with a beautiful artwork on the cover, when albums were eagerly anticipated, and every element of the music, art and sleeve notes were dissected, digested and discussed. ECC100 Records aims to honour that time and to bring the listener a unique experience by sitting down to actively listen to an album instead of having music played in the background.

“A journey through ancient stone circles and a descent to the centre of the Earth”

On 4th November, ECC100 Records will release Set In Stone, a pioneering concept album composed by renowned musicians and producers John Metcalfe (Peter Gabriel, The Pretenders, The John Metcalfe band) and Simon Richmond (Neneh Cherry, Imagined Village, The Bays). It is inspired by ancient stone circles and merges classical music with technological sounds; the modern with the ancient. Some of its songs were recorded outdoors amongst nature.
