Soundsphere magazine is a York-based online and print publication that focuses on local, national and international music, arts and culture, and they’ve just released a digital interactive version of their latest issue.
The Soundsphere mag brand has gone from strength to strength over the past few years gaining more notoriety through its diverse coverage, which has in turn, created the opportunity to unleash a new digital interactive version of Soundsphere magazine’s third issue featuring renowned artists including Asking Alexandria, The Gaslight Anthem, Reverend And The Makers and more.
This version of the magazine is available to purchase from the Apple App Store for £2.99 once downloaded (search for the term Soundsphere Mag) and it functions with iPhone and iPad (following this link to access). An Android version is also available following the download of the Readr app (following this link)
The digital and interactive publication will give fans of the magazine a chance to access the best in arts, culture and music news from Yorkshire and beyond. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” comments Soundsphere magazine editor, Dom Smith. “I feel like this will open us up to loads more people, and there are some really exciting possibilities for us to explore as we look at more interactive ways to engage with our dedicated readership.”
Jack Casling (Creative Director at Choir Of Vision) helped make the magazine ready for digital consumption (following awesome page composition work by Soundsphere’s in-house designer, Jamie Mahon). Jack comments: “Working on the digital version of Soundsphere magazine has been a blast. Dom and his team are people who I have been hugely excited to collaborate with and being responsible for kicking off the magazine’s IOS presence is an honour. Long may it continue!”
Starting out as a DIY online publication working with local bands around key areas like York, Hull and Sheffield, the magazine has developed a fantastic following and on the back of print releases and a successful website (www.soundspheremag.com), is now able to travel the world and cover festivals as diverse as Sziget (Hungary), Exit (Serbia) and SXSW (USA).

Note: I don’t normally just copy-past press releases on here, but given that I’ve been stupidly busy over the past week or so and this is about a magazine I’ve contributed to, I figured it wouldn’t harm. Hopefully this week will see some original content too, if you’re lucky.
