The demographic of New Zealand cities has shifted dramatically in the last 10 years with apartments popping up on seemingly every inner city corner in Auckland and Wellington.
The Phoenix Foundation’s Samuel Scott explores how this change has affected the live music scene. How does noise affect your sleep and wellbeing? Who judges how loud something has to be before it’s too loud? And who polices the noise police?
Scott takes a late night cruise with his local noise officer, meets heavy metal gods at the Wellington City Council and talks to venue owners and promoters to find out what all this noise is really about.
