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.

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