Tim’s new connection helps us tune in to the CQ music scene
WHEN Tim Sunderland picked up a set of drumsticks for the first time in 1997, his passion for music was discovered.
For the past 18 years the Rockhampton born-and-bred musician has been heavily involved in the Central Queensland music and entertainment scene but has found it hard to connect with other artists and share his work.
To remedy this, Tim recently created social networking hub The Sine Wave Connection.
"I've played around town for a number of years since I first started playing the drums in 1997, followed by the bass guitar. I've played with local pub rock band Level 27 since 2008 and recently have been producing my over dance music," Tim said.
"Everyone agrees advertising is a struggle, there's been a few Facebook pages pop up over the years but their intentions have been mixed or selfish at times and mainly focused towards the 'important' musicians in town.
"So I've started a new non-profit community organisation called The Sine Wave Connection.
"Its basic idea is a social hub of music and entertainment locally. It's designed for any genre musician from any walk of life to be able to connect with one another as well as the community, share their gig dates, need band members, interests in recording, share their already established music and to celebrate our local talents without discrimination in a positively constructive environment."
Tim said he aimed to break down the barriers surrounding the local music scene and create a level and positive playing field.
"Essentially I'm doing this for the community as we have many talented people here and a music industry that has great potential," he said.
"We currently have over 100 followers and it's only just gone live.
"It's a place where we can celebrate music in general but it will only work if everyone gets involved."
