The BORDERLINE BALLROOM is the managing committee of the CSSA aiming to provide a relaxed space for challenging listening and a regular live venue for performative audio experimentation. It supports local practitioners working on the peripheries of music and sound, while offering a resource for national and international performers touring New Zealand’s South Island.
We are cross-genre and non-hierarchical, interested in providing an outlet for musicians, composers and audio artists investigating live sonic experimentation of any variety. We are also interested in experimental side projects, new collaborations, artists investigating the relation of audio to other (live) media, and in people who don’t yet consider they have an audience outside their own headphones. If you would like more details, or have any questions, please contact us.
