Garden of Sound supports and gives a voice to artists creating original music.

The programme promotes a diverse range of new music from artists who might not fit the commercial radio mould. From high school students just starting out to performers with over 50 years of experience. The show also explores the role that producers, educators and promoters play in supporting original music. Most importantly Garden of Sound lets guests tell their story in their own words.

The show reaches further than the airwaves or online through Garden of Sound:LIVE. An initiative where students are booked to play a set of their material in front of a paying audience. This feeds back into the output of Garden of Sound, where the bands share their performance experiences with the local community.

If you’d like to appear on the show please e-mail info@gardenofsound.nz with your details.
