Made 2 Resonate

Colin Riley

At sound we are all about new music.

We think everyone should go on a sonic adventure, discovering new sounds and widening their musical horizons.

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

We’re about expecting the unexpected and making the north-east of Scotland a more exciting and vibrant place to live and visit.

Myself and many others left Aberdeen for London/Glasgow/Edinburgh because there was nothing in Aberdeen for us. Sound has brought us back and put Aberdeen on the map as far as contemporary music is concerned.
