Works For Loudspeakers is a quarterly listening party showcasing emerging and established composers.

Every edition is different, and curated to give a platform for non-performative sound-based composition – music that would usually not have a public outlet.

The audience is given an opportunity to exercise close listening in a friendly environment and many tracks are made available for download after the events.



Works For Loudspeakers was started by Emi Pogoni in 2014, initially at a private residence in Newtown, Wellington with nights at Toi Pōneke Arts Centre, the Pyramid Club, Magnet Melbourne, and now the Audio Foundation in Auckland.

It is available as an archive on bandcamp, and has also been presented for the following platforms:

FBi Radio (2018), Sydney
Magnet (2018), Melbourne
Performance Arcade (2016), Wellington
Alhambra Sound Garden (2015), The Auricle, Christchurch
RadioActive (various), Wellington
