Wall of Sound is a series of graphite rubbings of woodchip wallpaper in Jimi Hendrix’s London home at 23 Brook Street, made prior to the building's renovation into a museum. 

Hendrix’s home is next-door to where the composer Handel lived 200 years earlier and it is said that Hendrix saw visions of Handel in the walls of his flat. The wallpaper scores are composed of abstract marks created by graphite rubbings of the woodchip wallpaper on blank manuscript paper. The five sections, akin to a suite of music, were performed as part of the 2015 London Jazz festival at Handel House, as part of the 2016 London Jazz festival at the Southbank Centre and at the opening of the Hendrix House museum. An album of interpretations of the wallpaper scores is in progress with compositions by leading jazz musicians Calum Gourlay, Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian and Chris Montague. Footage of a track from the album being performed in Hendrix's bedroom can be seen below.
