Year of Sound is a time capsule collection of powerful, intimate stories about how music and sound has shaped the lives of some of the world’s leading marketers, musicians and artists in 2020.

Each story is different but they are all united in the innate human requirement for emotion, connection and inspiration.

No amount of global chaos and uncertainty can ever change that.

“This year was like no other, and the changes in peoples’ personal and professional lives due to the pandemic were felt from around the world. During times of high emotion – whether upset, scared, or frustrated – music plays a role in helping us feel and move through these emotions.

At Mastercard, we consider music a major passion point because it unites people from all stages of life through a common interest and gives people a sense of optimism. In addition to being one of our major passion points, we also use sound to connect with consumers in new ways. Through our sonic DNA we reassure folks that their transactions are safe and secure.

All brands should be looking at how they can give consumers peace of mind during these difficult times, and one way we’re doing that is through sound.”

“Music was one of the few escapes in this very difficult year. We found ourselves a bit nostalgic, listening to Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Dolly Parton, and others we hadn’t played in years. The sound of Ray Charles singing America was enough to have me weeping.

My favorite music in advertising this year was in the Nike ode to Kobe Bryant “Better”. Simple, haunting piano that underscored the beautiful writing and images.

I suspect that once we have this plague under control (keep going, pharmaceutical companies), there will be an explosion of wonderful new music and artists who have been working away in lockdown. Can not wait to hear it.”

“In the first lockdown of spring this year I found the absence of road traffic made each morning’s dawn chorus much clearer. I’m a keen birdwatcher anyway, but I found myself, through walking in the woods often, learning much more about the differences between common bird songs, like the Robin, Blackbird, Song Thrush and many more, and now am able to identify them much better just by their song.”

“The musical sound track to my life is mostly classical and blues, but this year I’ve been listening to more classical music than ever. Scarlatti, James Bowman, Handel, Joachim Held, John Garth, Beethoven’s piano sonatas, probably because they are a panacea for stress, something welcome in 2020. Also more contemporary stuff, Steve Reich and anything performed by the Kronos Quartet sort of thing, a way to evoke a mood and stimulate the brain, also something needed in lockdown.

Partly working by yourself at home is helped with music in the background but also if you don’t have to take other people’s taste into consideration, you can listen, guilt free, to what you really like.”

“Time at home really tuned me in to the soundscape of my bit of London. For many months the absence of city life dulled London’s hum. An eerie lockdown silence punctuated by ambulances to nearby St Mary’s.

But now, the slow build of sound again – buses, bikes, barnies outside the Prince Edward – has scored our slow return. London’s ‘buzz’ is an actual, audible thing – and I missed it.”

“Music and sound are two entirely different things for me. Music has flowed through my life this year very much it does every year. I use to keep me elevated and alive. I vacillate between revisiting artists who give me the pleasure of a well-honed love that is Pavlovian in the way it picks me up. I then seek out the new to keep my mind and taste expanding.Sound is something very different.

During the lockdown, I’ve been in the countryside. In the heart of the difficulties, I would walk to clear my head and the natural sounds, the ambient tone of wind, rain, air, birds etc. have been very calming. There is also the sound of familiar voices. Hearing people you care about. So I’ve balanced quiet, almost empty moments with high energy chat with people I love or collaborate with.”

“For me 2020, the year of pause, reflect and heal, has been about the oceanic sounds of the gong, the twinkling of the Koshi chimes, and the meditative drone of the Indian Shruti box rippling through my home. For me my attention was steered away from my usual music selection as such, and towards creating sound experiences for others.

In 2019 I was ushered towards certifying as a sound healer, with a 32' Don Conreaux gong falling onto my lap shortly after I had graduated.

When lockdown hit in March 2020, I knew this was the time to start sharing my new found love affair of the gong with others, to be of service in the stressful situation of the pandemic. My father made me a stand within days, and I was quickly making friends with these incredible instruments, especially my gong; rubbing with Flumies to create deep resonant dolphin like sounds, mixed with light taps building up to stronger strikes to hit immense crescendos.

I was working daily on the sounds to flow together coming in and out like waves of the sea washing over the body, until I felt ready to present and heal groups of people over the tech-waves.

The positive, feedback from my newly built community of people from all over the world, has been outstanding, and life-changing for me, listening first-hand to the healing experiences these sounds have brought to people’s lives.”

Music is an optimistic force and one that I've carried by my side throughout work and play in 2020.”

But this absence has allowed for reflection, and that in turn has led to new musical inspiration. For this, I’m grateful, but I also can’t wait for the sounds of life happening all around us to return!”

“As a parent thrown into home schooling whilst working from home for much of 2020, it has often been near impossible to find any headspace to work or peace and solace in which to concentrate.

With the constant noise of our house, the only way I've kept sane and focused is to plug headphones in and listen, not to speech radio (I get distracted by the conversation) or to music (I listen along too intently) but with a background track of Alpha-waves.

My go-to is a three-hour YouTube video by Yellow Brick Cinema (now with c150m views). It is just enough to tune out the noise and the thoughts of domesticity whilst providing a strangely magical sense of focus. Like Pavlov's dog, when I hear this track, my brain knows it has to stop faffing around and get down to work. I've become so reliant on this track that now I can't work without it. Without being able to escape inside my head with Alpha-waves, I don't think I would have coped.”

“With the world so crazy, news pretty bleak and work pretty intense, music has been like a real life friend. I know people have been buying puppies or walking their dogs more. That sense of connection with something you can love in a very simple way. That’s how I’ve felt about music.

Tracks I have always loved, albums, playlists, artistes, genres, they have become like long lost friends who I am enjoying spending time with.

They remind me of good time, and they keep me optimistic for the future.

I have been sharing more music too. Like a gift. And people receive it with open arms as we are all so remote and isolated.

And then there is the search for the new. I find myself on Pitch Fork once a week reading reviews and then on Spotify downloading 1 x rap, 1 x folk and 1 x Jazz album a week just to see if anything sticks. And often it does and I have a new friend in the gang. And that makes me very happy.

And when I want a laugh, I listen to the Hip Hop Saved my Life podcast from a few years ago hosted by Romesh Ranganathan. I love hip-hop, I love comedy so this is like an ice cold beer on a blazing hot day. Tick, tick.

So 2020 is the year I said thank you to music. It’s the year I was grateful to have such a great bunch of mates who knew me so well and also introduced me to some new friends who I think will be around for a long time to come.”

Until lockdown however, I’d underestimated how important music is in keeping us connected to one another.

A simple track, spontaneously shared by a colleague, friend or family member, can have an amazing impact on the mood and mental health of someone stuck at home.”

A podcast on my morning dog walk has replaced the noise of the 0747 train, the radio in my kitchen has replaced the background babble of the office, and the end of my working day is no longer signified by a dash to Waterloo, but rather sticking on a vinyl as I pack away my work things and wind down for the evening.”

“Traditionally I feed off the energy of live gigs, and the absence of them has removed a vital oxygen personally and professionally. However music has found new ways to become part of my everyday life support – whether through a cross company “Isolation Jams” project which saw musicians in four continents covering classic songs for fun, through watching regular lockdown gigs like jazz pianist Liam Noble’s Twitch gigs ever Saturday, or through enjoying the unconquerable enthusiasm and creativity of new bands like Vistas, releasing debut albums into national shutdowns. Bands who should have been ripping up the festival tents of Britain.

From a work point of view of course music remains a constant on any project, whether its placing newer artists like Samm Henshaw on our latest Kurt Geiger campaign or commissioning composers for new identities for brands like TG4 or indeed ransacking the music libraries of the world for the perfect aural accompaniment for Dreamworks Christmas or Discovery’s OTT platform. Now can we please just let music be live again.”

“At the beginning of the year in February 2020 I premiered a new major piece for live ensemble, turntables and electronics called Opus Infinity. The whole piece was focussed on exploring how we perceive time within space, and it set out to demonstrate how time, movement, space and sound are deeply interconnected. The piece explored how time is multifaceted, not linear but spiralic; how it changes speed and travels within us. The piece also focused on the increasing fragility of humanity and our future existence, and I was thinking a lot about this when I wrote the piece.

A week after the premiere of Opus Infinity the pandemic suddenly became a global event, the most significant in over 100 years and subsequently, lockdowns began to be announced worldwide. It felt like the piece had even more meaning than before, and so now I reflect, the meaning of my own work and the sound and sonic world I created mirrors this brief moment in time where humanity's understanding of the world changed forever.”

“Music has played a vital part of 2020. I’ve been avidly buying vinyl (old and new) to help through the months of relative lockdown inactivity. I’ve enjoyed collecting back catalogues and in particular Sacred Bones’ artists Moon Duo and Jenny Hval, while Erased Tapes’ Anne Müller, Boysen and Nils Frahm have played their part in moments of relaxation or working inspiration.

Long lost albums from King Crimson to ACDC have been welcomed back to the collection alongside new releases from Partisan’s Idles, Fontaines DC and Springsteen’s Letter To You.

Lockdown restrictions on living a ‘normal’ life with the tragic closure of music venues and festivals has meant 2020 created a vacuum of sorts allowing people to focus their spending on a lifestyle with personal value - which would account for the growth in music sales this year.”

“In the late 90’s I went to a therapist for the first time. It wasn’t a good experience. The therapist didn’t say a word on the 5 or 6 sessions we had. I started doing the math about how many CDs I could buy with the money I was spending on those sessions and since then music has always been my therapy.

2020 has been a terrible year for everyone, but especially for those who suffer from anxiety, like many of us in the advertising industry. This has been the year I made more playlists. It has been the year I bought and listened to more vinyls. It was also the year I didn’t go to any concert like the much anticipated Thundercat, Caribou and Big Thief shows in New York. Although we couldn’t go out to dance and let ourselves go, this was the year I spent more time dancing with my wife and kids at home, almost on a daily basis.

Music played a huge role helping me get through this year more softly.”

“This year has helped me to realise how much personal comfort I take in the sound of other people’s voices.

Although silence can be a welcomed blessing and I do relish time spent alone with my thoughts, I often prefer to fill those silences with other people’s conversations, especially when carrying out solitary tasks like cooking, cleaning, dog walking and the like.

Thus, I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts this 2020. Whether they be educational, entertaining, conversational - it’s nice to escape one’s inner monologue and insert one’s self in someone else’s world for a little while.”

“Such an interesting question and one that is suddenly relatable as I sit at home late in the evening listening to almost nothing, the hum of the boiler, the occasional reverb of the fridge and a snoring seventeen year old upstairs, but hardly none of the normal ambient sound of urban London life, no cars, few sirens and no laughter or voices as people leave the pubs and make their way home past the house. It’s almost like the dull cushioned silence a thick fall of snow brings.

During the initial phase of the first lockdown working from home and being on numerous zoom calls together with home schooling, music did not play a big role, there was simply no time but as things settled into more of a working rhythm and my day became mostly of morning meetings and then afternoons of reviewing pdfs there was time and that’s when I turned to listening to more classical and ambient music.

An album I played daily and never tired of was Mixing Colours by Roger and Brian Eno, it has a calming and contemplative effect which was often required after some of the ‘juggling’ of the days priorities and failing home tech. I’ve always liked Eno’s ambient albums both for their sound and visuals and also his Roxy Music days and David Bowie Heroes phase and his mum was my primary school dinner lady so it helps connect me to another time.

I think that’s the role music has played most, as a calming leveller, an agent of the familiar in a time of so much change.”

“I think lockdown has made us very aware of what matters, what we take for granted, and what helps to keep us alive inside. Technology has fast-tracked a lot of what it means to be human but rarely with the true cost or value reflected in the process.

During this year of global crisis (environmentally, politically, societally, socially, personally) I hope we can reclaim those things that are core to our humanity that may have got lost along the way: the power of art and the preciousness of our natural world. We cannot fast-track either and neither should be taken for granted.”
