The name The Music of Sound, in addition to being a playful reference to a well-known musical, reflects their unique technique of taking recordings of actual environmental or urban sounds (construction machinery, engines, sirens etc.) from which they can derive pitch and, through digital manipulation, create actual harmony so that the sounds of their living and working environment become musical instruments and directly influence their harmonic language (as opposed to just being sound effects). The name was first revealed by BBC Radio 3’s Suzy Klein when she introduced them on the BBC Introducing Stage at Latitude Festival in 2017.
The Music Of Sound are signed to the South East London-based Anglo-Irish indie label Dimple Discs, home of The Undertones, Jah Wobble, Microdisney, Dragon Welding and Keeley to name a few. For more information please contact the band’s management at firstname.lastname@example.org
