EyeSeeSound is the vision, passion and brainchild of Julian Bowman and Simon Matthews. When they both tired of the generic, homogenised music being fed to them by the media the pair took it upon themselves to offer a platform that championed the unsung heroes of the underground.

With this in mind, Jules and Simon began to develop and create a web TV show heavily slanted towards the independent music scene. Including short film and animation, The Show is ethically and socially aware, veering away from the traditional presenting style of studio links and interviews to an irreverent anti-presenter style. This was to become the flagship element of EyeSeeSound.

With the success of The Show, the pair worked on expanding the EyeSeeSound format by creating the Live Sessions and Mix Tapes. The Mix Tapes are a brilliant and useful outlet for discovering great bands. Each Mix Tapes is only available online but can be listened to free, with no adverts. The Live Sessions are about capturing the featured bands in their most raw, and honest form - as a live act. Everything on EyeSeeSound is chosen from a passion and belief in great independent music that hasn't received the attention they feel it deserves. Genre isn't important, and the bands featured are eclectic, but what is important is that the bands are passionate about the music they create.

From July 2010, EyeSeeSound will be releasing 5-track “DVD EPs” thus creating a new and exciting music format. Each DVD EP is beautifully packaged and designed as a singular piece of art reflecting the band and their music. They have made these DVD EPs as affordable as possible at £5 and on a 50/50 profit share with the bands. EyeSeeSound front all costs themselves and do not charge for their time. It is about the music and the art, rather than the money.

It is the belief of EyeSeeSound that a new dynamic is infiltrating the music business, a new paradigm of music consumption is being born, and the realm of independent and DIY music culture will no longer remain an underground sub class, but is a very possible and viable future for the production and consumption of music.

So, rise up, call out and join EyeSeeSound’s new revolution:
The music industry is dead! Long live music!
