The sounds of El Prat de Llobregat

Two Phonos projects about the sounds of Prat de Llobregat (Barcelona) are launched this November.

"El Delta del Llobregat Sona"

The next November 11th the project "El Delta del Llobregat Sona" will start. It is an initiative that aims to bring interest amongst high school students on science and technology by working with sounds. This project is done in collaboration with the Consorci dels Espais Naturals del Delta del Llobregat and Ajuntament del Prat, and it consists of 5 workshops to be held during the month of November. The participants are students of 3rd grade of ESO from Mare de Deu del Carme school and Estany de la Ricarda school of El Prat de Llobregat.

Participants will explore the sounds of natural areas identifying and recording them. Then they will edit sounds and include them into Freesound, where the sounds will be geotagged to create a sound map.

"Observatori de l’Escolta"

In addition on November 6th the “Observatori de l’Escolta” will be held at the Civic Center Jardins de la Pau and at the Cultural center Cèntric in El Prat de Llobregat. This activity is part of the Interstitial spaces project by Mikel R. Nieto, Phonos grant 2012.

The “Observatori de l’Escolta” aims to offer a space for listening to citizens in matters related to sound, noise and landscape. This observatory will use critical tools for thinking through listening and understanding the social structures which are associated to many of the urban and natural sounds to which we are exposed.

In collaboration with: La Capsa, el Consorci dels Espais Naturals del Delta del Llobregat and  l’Ajuntament del Prat.
