Orchestra of Sound

Whatever the sound, music finds a way

Beautiful Music Made with Everyday Sounds!


The Orchestra of Sound creates music using an orchestra of everyday sounds, performing exciting original melodies and never-before-heard orchestrations. Music is composed from sounds that originate from everywhere in life, including sewer covers, wine glasses, train tracks, bridges, boats, chimes, as well as from unusual musical instruments built from garbage cans, wheelbarrows, tubes and other recycled items.

The live one-man show is where sound and visuals collide. It is an orchestra of sounds in two parts simultaneously - a live performance backed by video projected on a large screen. As music created from sounds is heard, the screen projects images of how the sounds the audience hears were made - video footage of Paul Snider making sounds by playing on cars, bridges, tanks, satellite dishes, and so on - sounds captured from the world around us and knitted together to create a unique soundscape. The live component spotlights Paul performing at centre stage on a piano along with a loop machine and a myriad of solo instruments he built from recycled materials, synchronized with the video projected on the screen. The result is a unique, never-before-heard orchestration of sounds that combine to create engaging, original music enjoyed by all ages. Paul captures the audience's imagination as he describes the different sounds he uses and why they work so well in harmony. The show is as  educational as it is entertaining.

A large part of this project is our commitment to the environment. For every album sold and for every ticket purchased to a live Orchestra of Sound show, we plant a tree in some part of the world.
