VOLUME: MAKING MUSIC IN AOTEAROA (2016): Songs from us for us

The exhibition of New Zealand popular music at the Auckland War Memorial Museum is now open. It is entitled Volume: Making Music in Aotearoa and runs until May 2007.

And it is free.

It covers seven decades of music in Aotearoa New Zealand, from the days of rock'n'roll rebels in the Fifties to contemporary pop, hip-hop and r'n'b.

There are literally hundreds of artefacts and images donated by musicians, sourced from home and abroad, and there is a replica of a Seventies pub, a contemporary recording studio and a C'mon television studio from the Sixties. Lots of interactive stuff (and on your way around you can download for free music and videos).

It's a big one and long overdue.

Let's hope it's the first step on establishing a New Zealand Music Hall of Fame and Exhibition.
