Phonos project is an initiative of the Music Technology Group at Pompeu Fabra University in collaboration with Phonos Foundation.
With this project we want to promote cultural activities related to research in music technology. This initiative fosters that the results of research have a direct impact on the cultural and artistic world, encouraging innovation and the intersection between music and technology.
This is a project open to society in which, working with organizations and individuals outside the university, we develop awareness-raising workshops on sound and music, offer creation grants, organize a regular series of concerts, and promote an experimental music portal.
