Sonolize is live

Het is onze droom om een plek te creëren waar componisten en muzikanten elkaar vinden, met een eerlijke prijs voor de componist en waar je makkelijk bladmuziek kunt downloaden met een muisklik.
Een platform voor de nieuwe generatie, digitaal, onafhankelijk en met aanbod van hoge kwaliteit aanbod. Bij Sonolize draait het om muziek, om de makers en de spelers. 

Als initiatiefnemers bouwen we samen aan die droom en helpen we jullie graag om elkaar snel te vinden. 
En dankzij de hulp van Marco van 'Kaiji Design', Peter en Lieke van 'BlueMonque', Cody van 'Buro Barabas', Micha van 'SOLV-advocaten', Paul van 'De Boekhouder', Ilja en Mascha als inspiratiebron en onze onvermoeibare collega's Laura en Jake, wordt Sonolize die plek.

Our dream is to create one place for composers and musicians to meet, with a fair price for the composer, where you can easily download the music with a mouse click.
A new generation platform, easy, digital, independent and with a high-quality offer. At Sonolize it's all about music, the makers and the players. 

As initiators, we build that dream and we love to help you find each other quickly. And thanks to the help of Marco from 'Kaiji Design', Peter and Lieke from 'BlueMonque', Cody from 'Buro Barabas', Micha from 'SOLV Lawyers', Paul from 'De Boekhouder', Ilja and Mascha as a source of inspiration and our tireless colleagues Laura and Jake, Sonolize became that place.
