The Audio Foundation had been running out of director Zoe Drayton's bedroom. Nevertheless, they'd done pretty well for themselves- maintaining online audio archives, a daily email digest, country-wide alt music tours, collecting oral histories, and releasing a CD of NZ audio culture for UK magazine The Wire. Their new, open-to-all hub, just off K Rd. in Auckland has space for performances and exhbitions as well as film screenings and a zine library. Nick Atkinson went to the launch to meet the Audio Foundation community.
