Brighten up the dark nights by creating your own sound and light installations. Share the joy of sound, music and light with communities across the globe, right now and throughout winter 2020.

There are no limits to what you might make; it can exist for a few seconds or last several months. Using sound and light in a fun and original way, you can make your Sonic Lights from anything you might find at home, but we encourage you to think of the environment, and use LED lights or candles where possible.

Sonic Lights can be created individually, but we would like you to work together, with family, friends or neighbours whilst adhering to local COVID-19 guidelines. When yours is ready, put it in the window, back, front or communal garden to share with as many people as possible passing by.

You can also take part in Sonic Lights by making and sharing a short video (max. 60secs) of your work on Instagram using the hashtag #SonicLights. We will share your videos across our social media feeds, stories and on the Cryptic website, and please do post to your other profiles on Facebook, TikTok and Twitter too.

If social media isn’t for you, simply send your Sonic Lights to us by email: and we will still feature it online. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions too. 

What can you make with sound and light? The only limit is your imagination…
