about

During 2013 the Nerve Centre delivered ‘Resonate’ – an ambitious recording initiative which captured the musical talent, energy and spirit of the city during 2013. By providing a range of recording opportunities, such as locally based professional facilities and roving, mobile ‘pop-up’ recording studios, Resonate recorded the music being performed in the city throughout 2013, including collaborations between local and international artists and established and emerging artists.
