#SoundsInspired – current project

We are excited to be in the midst of our latest project whereby sound became the focus!

Having co-created a song called #SoundsInspired, we invited you to LISTEN,

and then to CREATE a piece of inspired artwork or photography!

The online gallery is now closed for entries and available for all to see and SHARE

We have now entered the next stage whereby 50+ pieces have been selected for the NEW LOOK Yellow Book

AND soon winners will be selected for the cover artwork of the music single and The Audio Yellow Book!

How exciting!
