Sound Systems have played a pivotal role in the development of music globally. From hip-hop to punk, grime to garage. Sound Systems are tied up in the story of every music culture.
The impact on musicians, DJs, and punters right here in Ōtautahi has been felt for decades and has furthered the development of music in our city, powered by hard work, passion, and innovation.
Ōtautahi Sound System Culture is a short documentary filmed by RDU 98.5FM that explores the people, history, and construction of Ōtautahi’s rich sound system culture. From the role of the sound system operator, to the variety of experiences on the dance floor.
Sound Systems who are showcased in the documentary include Subtle Sound System, Bass Factory Sound System, Eyes Down Sound, Chief Remedy Sound System, Roots Fire Sound, Boom Candy Sound System, Irie Sound, and RDU 98.5FM’s own micro sound system.
The Ōtautahi Sound System Culture Documentary was made with support from The Christchurch City Council and its Virtual Ōtautahi fund, originally set up in 2020 to help produce visual content about communities from our city post COVID-19.
The Ōtautahi Sound System Culture Documentary will premiere on April 14th at Tyanhaus, 5pm – 9pm.
The documentary will then be available to view from the 15th – 20th of April, with sound systems from the documentary being displayed during the exhibition dates.
