The official launch and release of Catalyst volume 4 and Catalyst Spoken Word Series 1 is on Thursday December 1st. The launch party details are:

Catalyst 4 release party
Thursday 1st December, 8pm
Wunderbar, Lyttelton
The launch will feature readings from featured and guest poets and writers from around NZ plus tracks from the very first in Catalyst's Spoken Word Series. Be the first in the world to hear the latest innovation from your ever-lovin' Neoismist Press and She'll Be Right Records.
The CD was produced by Jody Lloyd of She'll Be Right Records and represents a collaboration between writers/speakers and original New Zealand music. It is a bold project that dares to feature music on an equal footing with the spoken word and sets a tough bar for future Spoken Word CDs to achieve. Featured are voices/accents from around the world now resident in Aotearoa and one or two pieces of music by New Zealanders now based overseas. This reflects the great kiwi tradition of immigration/emmigration - the transient nature of modern New Zealanders and the fluidity of citizenship and belonging to this place we call 'home'. Catalyst has always sought to highlight this multicultural reality as well as feature established artists alongside emerging or young talent. The Catalyst Spoken Word Series is true to this form with several recognisable names among a few 'first-timers'. All with unique voices, listen for yourself.
The CD of Catalyst Spoken Word Series comes with your copy of Catalyst volume 4. Copies and subscriptions will be available for sale on the night or email us using the sidebar link.
