There Not Here is a monthly broadcast of field recordings on AFM. Each edition of is organised around a theme determined by Tash van Schaardenburg, Jimmy Solórzano, Sam Longmore, and Xin Cheng, artists working with and in relation to field recording in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa. Responding to the given theme, each of these artists produces a selection of recordings over the course of a month. These sonic excerpts of place are collated and broadcast on AFM from 7pm on the second Wednesday of each month, before being archived on the AFMixcloud page.

For A ROOM THAT ECHOES, a selection of these recordings will be installed in the Audio Foundation entranceway and stairwell, diffusing via an array of portable speakers. Descend into AF and through the sounds which have comprised recent THERE NOT HERE broadcasts (“Tāmaki by Night”, “Waterways”, “Weather”, “Living Sounds”, “Sounds of Joy”).
