The sounds of the Intercultural Barcelona

How does Barcelona sound? Life in our neighborhoods is full of sounds that reflect the diversity of residents.

Sounds of Barcelona project, in co-operation with the program BCN Intercultural of the Barcelona City Council and the network of Centres Cívics, promote a series of workshops that encourage participants to listen to the environment, to explore the diversity of the neighborhood and recording the sounds of everyday life. Through the sounds we will debate on identity and diversity, create compositions from the recordings made and include the sounds in a sound map of intercultural Barcelona in Freesound.

The workshops will take place in Centre Cívic Besos, Centre Cívic Guinardó, Convent de Sant Agustí and Centre Ton i Guida between October 2014 and February 2015.

These workshops continue with the project The Sound of Cultures, initiated in early 2014 with the support of Obra Social La Caixa.
