Underground Sound is run as a drop-in project with an emphasis on music and other arts. We have a range of musical instruments including guitars and electric drums as well as decks, amplifiers, and a selection of CDs and records. We were also had an extremely generous donation of a recording booth from the X Centre in the summer 2013.
There is a large comfortable room (The Crow’s Nest) that is reserved for Underground Sound participants on Fridays. There are hot and cold drink making facilities available. The project is for young people over 18 who are experiencing or have experienced mental health difficulties as well as their friends, family and anyone who has an interest in mental health and music.
The project provides opportunities for individuals to benefit from being part of a group, from learning new skills and from being creative using musical expression. It also helps to develop and build upon existing talents, learning from others and forming friendships which extend outside of the project.
Underground Sound is currently having a break. Please see What’s On for dates.
