About the CSSA

The Cantabrian Society of Sonic Artists (CSSA) is a sonic arts group based in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. It was originally established as a hub for sonic arts in the region and grew out of The Borderline Ballroom, an experimental music collective that has been curating events featuring “music from the margins” in the city since 2007.

Through the Auricle Sonic Arts Gallery we ran a regular programme of events from 2013-2017 including: hosting live performances and monthly sound art exhibitions by local, national and international sonic artists, as well as seminars and workshops, and the Audacious Sonic Arts Festival.
