Locally produced music series The Sound is returning to ABC for a new season this November.
Created by Mushroom Vision, The six-part series celebrates the movers and shakers across the Australian music industry, shining a light on some of our country’s finest musicians and songwriters, with exclusive pre-recorded live performances, collaborations and artist interviews.
For season two, The Sound will move 30 minutes later to 6pm Sunday’s. A programming decision that puts the music series into the same timeslot occupied by the legendary series Countdown.
The return of program for a second season has been timed to coincide with the ABC’s celebration of AusMusic month.
The Sound is hosted music aficionado Jane Gazzo (triple j, Recovery) and Triple J’s Bridget Hustwaite. Each week they are joined by a special co-host as they talk music news and introduce a terrific line-up of performances from around the country.
It’s been seven months since COVID crippled Australia’s live music industry, leaving artists, venues, crew, and music lovers without a vital part of our country’s culture and economy. Born out of this crisis, The Sound’s purpose is clear: to showcase Australian music. With unique, multi-platform content, season two will continue to highlight the vast array of local talent within our industry, with artists given the opportunity to perform for prime-time audiences on our national broadcaster.
Regular segments include; From the Vault will highlight historical music clips; Tribute will see today’s artists collaborating on iconic Aussie tracks; while Introducing will showcase performances from Australia’s hottest new talent. plus a few new surprises.
