plainsightSOUND is a research project focused on rediscovering historical musicians of African and Caribbean descent in British classical music by examining their work in Britain before 1970.
The initiative uncovers and promotes these musicians through:
1. Research - collecting subjects, stories and music for the database.
2. Reconstruction - collecting, recreating and publishing sheet music.
3. Performance – presenting the music to audiences, including many world premieres.
