ORiGiN Theatrical to represent Eddie Rayner's ENZSO Concert Library

New Zealand musical impresario Eddie Rayner has signed an exclusive worldwide publishing representation with ORiGiN Music Publishing. The representation includes the vast catalogue of Eddie Rayner compositions covering over 40 years of creative diversity including his work as a key member of Split Enz and subsequent collaborations.

In a nice bit of synergy ORiGiN Theatrical will also be representing Eddie's ENZSO Concert Library making the orchestral arrangements available to be licensed and performed more widely.

In the mid 90's Eddie dreamt up the concept of orchestrating the songs of Split Enz and realised that dream by arranging and recording a hit album with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra combined with the New Zealand National Youth Choir, conductor Peter Scholes and guest vocalists Tim Finn, Neil Finn, Dave Dobbyn and Annie Crummer. This album was followed by a sell-out national tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Eddie Rayner is by no means idyl. With his home studio base Eddie has been working away on a multitude of musical projects - producing artists and developing some intriguing collaborations.

With the ensemble Double Life Eddie has created a collection of imaginative instrumental works. Parts of those works have also been adapted for an exciting new project Eddie has developed with Tim Finn to be titled ForENZics.

'It is an honour and a delight to be representing Eddie and all his musical works and projects' says ORiGiN Music Creative Director Philip Mortlock. 'We've known each other for many years and it was after a couple of catch up's in Auckland back in 2019 that we could see an opportunity for us to work together and realise the potential of all that Eddie has been working on and what is planned for the future.'
'Our concert library is an important part of our theatre and concert catalogue', says ORiGiN Theatrical Managing Director Kim Ransley. 'The great potential for such a significant original New Zealand body of work is immense. Can't wait to get it out there.' says Ransley.
