Sound Map

Inici » Sound Map

In each neighbourhood, the Sound Map of Barcelona is in charge of the sound heritage of different public spaces in order to be able to understand analytically and scientifically those sounds that build the acoustic realities of the streets, squares and parks where we live. In this process, citizens participate in different moments of the research: they decide which spaces deserve to be analysed in order to be more representative of the neighbourhoods, they make the sound recordings with professional recorders, they take notes of the sound sources, and they collect the sensations and emotions that these contexts and sound environments provoke, and the cultural and social uses associated with these spaces.
