About

Constellations is a community of listeners, investigating the world through sound.


We curate and produce a podcast, live events and publish sound materials.

Constellations features a wide-range of audio works which unravel the distinctions between experimental documentary, sound art, soundscapes, fiction, and music. The pieces we air demand a deep listening experience, encouraging listeners to expand their conception of narrative, sound and attention.

Constellations prioritizes working with artists who are BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, gender diverse, women, and/ or emerging creators under 30.

We are currently not accepting pitches or finished pieces to air on our podcast. If you are interested in collaborating with us, or helping build our community, get in touch here.
