The Hidden Years Archive Move
3rd Ear Music can announce that we may have acquired a major long-term research & archive grant. It's been 2 lean & hard hand-to-mouth years, and although this it is confidential for now, Fran & I just had to share this with you.
There was some concern since 446 Currie Road has been sold. We were not too certain about what was going to happen with 3rd Ear Music & this vast 'hidden history' collection of music material. The completion of our Hidden Years Story book & our move from Durban to Nebo (Eastern Free State) now seems imminent.
Whatever happens, it looks certain that we will form a partnership with the University of KwaZulu-Natal - a few of the Humanities will be involved.
After years of negotiating too commercial for academia & too academic for commerce? it took just one lady person 1 week to do what 20 odd acronymic heavy weight arts & culture organisations couldn’t do in 14 years; which is, basically, to make a plan & save a piece of history & heritage that the mainstream ignored, avoided or even sometimes banned.
It (almost) goes without saying, that the reason for the lack of interest in this very colourful hidden history is obvious; the very institutions & companies who played those restriction ‘games’ with all ‘alternative’ music & musicians, pre-1990, are still in radio control & still calling the tune. Do they have something to hide?
More especially we must thank those who have hung in there with us & who have contributed. As soon as details become a little clearer, we will let you know what's happening.
