The Auricle

From Standing Room Only, 3:00 pm on 9 March 2014

For a long time Christchurch has boasted a thriving sonic arts community and with the opening of The Auricle, it now has a place where they can play. The Auricle Sonic Arts Gallery and Wine and Sound Bar is the South Island's only gallery dedicated to the work of sonic artists - and quite possibly the only bar in the country where the wine you drink is curated to and enhanced by the sounds you hear. Malcolm Riddoch and Jo Burzynska are the gallery's directors. Justin Gregory met with them during Audacious Festival of Sonic Arts, based at the gallery and asked Jo to explain the "wine and sound bar" concept.
