Join Simon Grigg and Murray Cammick as they discuss their ambitious plans for music website AudioCulture, which aims to document the history of New Zealand music culture.

Simon and Murray will speak about working with artists, historians and music industry people to tell the stories of nearly 100 years of New Zealand popular music, from the first vinyl recording in the 1920s to digital streaming. AudioCulture is an evolving, online celebration of New Zealand music. The site aims to highlight the people who have created the music, the scenes they shaped, and the audiences they played to.

Join us for a welcome glass of wine from 6pm before the talk begins at 6.30pm.
