Welcome to the SoundDome Organisation
Our vision is 'to provide continuing education and art-making opportunities for New Zealand sonic artists.’
SoundDome is a registered charitable trust that provides sonic artists with a range of educational and developmental opportunities that support the practice of sonic arts in New Zealand. The studio space in Matangi Waikato offers a safe-haven from the rigours of city life, opportunities to learn and grow from nearby Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari, access to purpose-built technologically advanced facilities, technical tuition and facilitation of creative ideas relating to seven sub-disciplines: stereo and multichannel acousmatic music, live sonic arts, generative music, sonic arts in the field, visual music, interactive installation and innovative forms of popular music.
Through this work, the organisation seeks to invigorate, support, and grow a community of creative practitioners who compose, perform, fabricate, innovate, and make use of technology; who study and research the language of music and sound; who learn from and care for the natural environment; and who use their individual and collective heritage as a source of musical inspiration. For an overview of the organisation's vision, ethos, practice and facilities please refer to the SoundDome Organigram and 'SoundDome: The Birth of a Community Organisation'.
