Why New Music?

Matthew Whiteside (composer)

sound is all about new music.

We invite you on a sonic adventure - discover new sounds and expect the unexpected!

We support composers to create because making new music is important to us.

We think the north-east of Scotland is an exciting and vibrant place to live and visit.

soundfestival 2017


This is a festival that clinches that most elusive of ideals: it’s a genuine meeting point of community engagement and contemporary music.
