The Sonic Mind

Journey through music by moving your fingers around this interactive pewter brain sculpture.

Listen to music and stories, as each touch brings these original compositions to life.

The unique pieces of music and spoken word have been created by young people from south east London. The sensory work captures their stories, experiences, hopes and ambitions.

They were brought together with professional musicians to create their pieces. Sound designer and artist Gawain Hewitt helped to realise their ideas.

Sonic Minds is a two-year creative music project working with care experienced children and displaced young people.

Led by Lewisham Music and funded by Youth Music and Children in Need.

A huge thank you to the project producer Keith Sykes and music leaders: Y.A Poet, Arun Janssens, Damien Cooke, Alice Hale, James Yarde, Intalekt, Joy Stacey, Arthur Lea and Gillian Brown.
