Sound Workshops

The sound workshops program was created in 2008 around the platform Freesound.org (Music Technology Group), aiming to promote interest in sound and sound technologies as a means to understand and influence our surroundings.

We organize workshops where participants learn to listen, think and work with the sound of our environment, through exercises and creative strategies. The project also emphasizes the dissemination and collaborative networking using and open licenses.

The workshops are focused in different ages and groups, and we work in partnership with schools, civic centers, associations and cultural centers.

Currently we have different on going projects:
