About ISounds

This section of the ODWS is dedicated to all ISounds band members and we hope that, wherever they are in the world, they will continue to make music that will bring people together in peace and harmony.

 

ISounds began as IBSounds in October 2003. It changed its name officially when it welcomed French Bac students who joined the IB students in the lineup. The teachers in the band, David Hoult, Alan Damon, Carl Briggs, Ana Bartlett, Robert Mitcham and Shirley Burchill will always feel privileged to have worked with so many talented students, many of whom went on to make their careers in music.

ISounds accepted students from 9th grade to 12th grade. By its nature, the lineup changed every year as the 12th grade members graduated high school. A few individuals stayed with the band for three years until, sadly, we had to say goodbye to them.

Each year the band worked towards two objectives. The first was to prepare for an annual concert that was held in late March or early April. The second was to record the songs for a CD that was released in May. All proceeds from the concert and the sale of CDs was donated to charities and/or appeals.

The ISounds band only met for rehearsal once every week for a maximum of three hours at the end of a school day. The band had its first chance to perform publicly during the Talent Show at the end of December. The tracks for the CD were recorded in my office, often at the end of the school day and during the holidays. David Hoult, physics teacher, lead guitarist and vocalist, used his electrical engineering talents to supervise the recording sessions and mix the tracks to the songs that made up the CD. Mr H also put his talents to setting up the sound system before each practice session and for the concert. There were no rooms or concert halls set aside for a Rock and Roll band to practice so all the equipment that was stored (somewhat illegally) in the IT server cupboard had to be transported and returned every time it was used!

Although most of its annual playlist was made up of cover versions, the band was fortunate enough to boast a good many singer/songwriters over the years and their originals can be down loaded as complete tracks. ISounds final concert was in April 2013. Over the ten years the band welcomed 91 members and performed well over 160 songs. Even though the band is no longer performing its music lives on. The ISounds motto is 'once a member, always a member' and the pages in this section of the Open Door Web Site are dedicated to all ISounds members where ever they may be. ISounds also has a Facebook page with the address @ISoundsLivesOn. On Mr Hoult's YouTube channel you will find 90 videos that span the ten concerts and the practice sessions, as well as the band's appearances at UNESCO when it took part in the Terminal Night Show graduation ceremonies.
