The following video presents Exploring and sharing our love for music – #Sony70:

Follow the #Sony70 story on our Sony blog:…

Music forms an integral part of our company – even the name Sony was inspired by ‘sonus’, the Latin word for ‘sound’. We’ve always been just as passionate about audio as the people who use our products, and to celebrate 70 years of Sony we wanted to uncover the roots of that passion. Armed with Sony α7 cameras, we embarked on a trip to Tokyo to explore its thriving music scene and discover just how integral music is to the Japanese culture.

Sony’s monthly competition is your chance to show Sony how you see the world whether it’s a smartphone, snapshot camera or digital SLR in your hand.

If you’re a regular reader of our blog section then you’ll know that we just launched our aSe7ens project, where we followed seven popular Instagrammers around Tokyo and explored the rich Japanese heritage of Sony. The first blog documents the country’s passion and excitement for music, and so this month we’re looking for your best ‘energy and excitement’ photos.

Maybe you’ll stick to the music theme and go for a shot that captures the stimulating atmosphere of a live concert, or maybe you’ll go for something different altogether – upload your photo to our competition gallery and you’ll be in with a chance of winning one of our great prizes.
