Adam Greenwell - A Vocation of Music Anthropology 06/05 by ArtSeesDiner | Blog Talk Radio

Adam Greenwell, New Zealand "New Zealand based writer, musician, anthropology graduate and entrepreneur Adam Greenwell has explored how education and community-spirit are expressed through music for over twenty years. He is the author of "Wrestling and Nestling" a book of interviews and reflections on life in New Zealand. He founded the Town Green Music concept of community based music recording and performance. Greenwell rates his biggest achievement to date as"Get Some Vision: A Tribute to Leonardoda Vinci". This was a music album recorded by diverse New Zealand musicians featuring quotes by Leonardo recited in Italian by the Italians of Wellington, New Zealand's capital. The album commemorated the 500th anniversary of Leonardo's fresco The Last Supper in 1998. A global outreach followed whereby the album was mailed across the world as a gesture of international peace and goodwill. Warm replies were received from Blessed Pope John Paul II; President Vaclav Havel;Harrison Ford; Pierre Trudeau; President Nelson Mandela;Archbishop Desmond Tutu; Sir Cliff Richard; Mary Robinson; Lord Menhuin and many dignitaries. This project was supported and managed by Liz Greenwell, Adam's mother, who went on to write, produce and direct No Chance to Paint the Canvas; the world's first film about civil society on a global scale. Adam is production assistant to a documentary about Liz Greenwell's ongoing international work planned to be the "greatest example of global cooperation ever committed to celluloid."
