The Audio Foundation was founded in 2004 by Zoe Drayton to support, promote and preserve “Sound Art” /“Experimental Music” / “Noise” /“Drone Music” etc in NZ.

Initially a virtual infrastructure, the Audio Foundation quickly became a Charitable Trust and began presenting programs such as Altmusic, publishing the Dirt Beneath the Daydream CD that went out to 9000 subscribers in the Wire magazine, the Erewhon Calling publication, and other initiatives such as the A/V Library.

In 2011, we were lucky enough to find the space we are in now and began a whole new life as a physical entity. In 2014, Zoe Drayton handed the reins over to the new Director Jeff Henderson after a fantastic 10 year stint building Audio Foundation into the thriving community hub it continues to be.
