The Audio Foundation Board of Trustees wishes to inform all interested parties that our current Director and founder of Audio Foundation, Zoe Drayton, has tendered her resignation as of March 2014.
After ten dedicated years establishing a centre and national network for the support, promotion and preservation of New Zealand sound/art culture, Zoe will be returning to study for a Masters degree.
Towards this change, the Audio Foundation Board of Trustees are very pleased to announce that Jeff Henderson will be taking over the role of Director at Audio Foundation.
Jeff brings to the position, a new energy and breadth of experience as one of New Zealand's leading improvising musicians, with an international reputation and with a history of facilitating experimental music venues, (Happy), recording releases (4 iiii's label), performances and for his active support and involvement with trans-disciplinary art practices that promote and foreground sound.
Jeff will take up a full time position in March 2014 and we look forward to exciting times ahead for the Audio Foundation.
We take this opportunity to sincerely thank Zoe for her vision and unfailing commitment to the build of Audio Foundation and to wish her every success in the future and for every initiative she undertakes. Audio Foundation is flourishing and we are grateful to Zoe for all that she leaves behind her.
