Auckland Museum Launches Volume Exhibition

From 'Loyal' to 'Royals', from C'mon to clubs, from 'Poi Poi Twist' to 'Poi E', Volume: Making Music in Aotearoa is a landmark exhibition about making and performing popular music in NZ. 

Taking us on a musical journey, starting with today, and winding back through the decades to the 1950s, you can listen to the songs that you've fallen in love to, broken up to and everything in between.

Hundreds of objects from the personal collections of some of Aotearoa's most well-known artistsare on display; costumes, instruments, handwritten lyrics, awards, images and memorabilia galore.

You can step into a recording studio, spin the decks as a DJ, flip through records in a 1980s' record store, unleash your inner rock star and learn to play a classic Kiwi song in a 1970s' pub, or step back in time and on to the set of 1960s' music show C'mon.

Volume has been developed with the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame Trust (APRA AMCOS and Recorded Music NZ), and in conjunction with SPARK.
