SOUND BOOK PROJECT

'Sound Book Project' is a group of collaborating artists and musicians using books as instruments.

Interacting with books in a new and surprising way, suddenly the books will trigger sound by the turn of a page. The books speak for themselves.  The books will be wound, sprung, strummed, slapped and thrown and a soundscape will evolve around the performers.

The tactile nature of the book creates a sensual response that far surpasses reactions to the digital equivalents.  It is emotional and aesthetic. Triggering memory and emotion…

Crack the spine

Strum the pages                                                                  

Play the fragments of memories.
