Society of Sound Music

Profile:
Society of Sound is an online community, launched in 2007 by Bowers & Wilkins to promote and discuss high quality digital audio formats, equipment, etc. Celebrity contributors of the project are called “Fellows”, and their list includes Peter Gabriel, David A. Stewart, jazz singer Cassandra Wilson, Steve Van Zandt, industrial designer Kenneth Grange, tech specialists from Abbey Road Studios and Skywalker Sound, etc.

In May 2008, B&W started Bowers & Wilkins Music Club, a subscription-based music site, providing downloads of a variety of albums in high-quality Apple Lossless and FLAC formats, recorded in a partnership with Gabriel’s Real World Studios. Later two entities were merged together, and currently those subscription-based albums were available via Society of Sound. Since January 2019 the membership program is no longer available.
