Somewhere, someone incredible is waiting to be seen.


Wise Men of the Sound System.  Up and coming artist Ben Salmon lives locally, and we are pleased to have this commisioned work in the installation. Ben chose to represent the tradition of the ‘sound system’. Rooted in Jamaican culture and reggae music, sound sytems were officially introuced to Notting Hill Carnival in 1973. Today there are over 30 static sound systems catering for numerous musical tastes. Everything from dub, rare groove and house, to jungle, samba, blues and Hip Hop.

“I am pleased with the result and glad that ‘Wise Men’ have their place within a collection of photos and artworks about music rhythm and sound from the area .”   Benjamin Salmon
