Music to move the world
Found Sound Records makes media that moves the world, one beat at a time. We curate, produce and distribute musical artifacts - from albums and books to films - that stand at the intersection of music and social change, creating a diverse and global platform for musical innovators.
In early 2017 Found Sound Nation catalogued and recorded the sounds of over 800 broken instruments from the Philadelphia public school system. As these recordings became the raw material for David Lang's new orchestral work Symphony for Broken Instruments, we quickly realized that we were in the process of archiving a unique collection of sounds - a trove of singular, never-to-be-played-again instruments. We invited a larger community of producers to creatively reimagine these broken instrument samples, generating new works in any style and by any means they wished.
Found Sound Nation, the acclaimed Brooklyn artist collective and production team, brings you their first worldwide album release, Travelers: Dosti Music Project. This album showcases a wide variety of musical traditions, ranging from Sufi singing fused with indie-rock tendencies to beatmaking and avant-garde jazz.
Indian alternative site Wild City has profiled Travelers: Dosti Music Project, on their blog. "The result is a unique cross-cultural collaboration that you won’t hear anywhere else.", writes Wild City in their review.
