Black Obsidian Sound System was established in the summer of 2018 with the intention of bringing together a community of queer, trans and non-binary black and people of colour involved in art, sound and radical activism. Following in the legacies of sound system culture they wanted to learn, build and sustain a resource for our collective struggles.

In this tutorial you will learn how to make music on the online digital audio workspace Soundtrap. Watch the video below and head to www.soundtrap.com to start creating your own sounds now.

To catch Black Obsidian Sound System's latest work, The Only Good System Is a Sound System, head to FACT for Liverpool Biennial 2021 until 29 August 2021. B.O.S.S presents an immersive environment, combining film, light, a sound score and sculpture. Weaving together archival images, the installation reflects the ways in which marginalised groups have developed methods of coming together against a background of repression and discrimination in the UK – positioning sound culture as spaces of collective strength and encounter where kinship is found and reciprocated.
