The Sound of Scars

Beam Project Type: Project in Available Phase

The Sound of Scars is an idea I have fostered for the last year as a means to bring awareness and provide support to those experiencing emotional abuse like I have in my past when I felt there was no-where to turn. The idea is simple, show emotional abuse through a new medium; Art and music. By combining mediums, a larger impact can be created on the viewer both mentally as well as sensationally. This is the goal of the grant funded gallery being hosted at the Rochester Civic Theatre, August 6-21, 2015 (More Info Here). But "The Sound of Scars" isn't just a one time showcase of art and music, It's a symbol of awareness and hope that can be carried on to help support those in need as well as bring light to many overlooked topics in our world. "Every pain has a scar, every scar has a story, and every story deserves to be heard" This is the premise of "the Sound of Scars". To be a forum to help support, bring awareness to, and eventually to lead to the reduction of emotional abuse.

Site Information
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community,'s  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. could be an interesting first step.

The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
