The Sounds of our Cities

Sounds of Our Cities takes place in duration of 20 months in October 2019-May 2021. It is a collaboration between 4 partners: the City of Roeselare, BE; Idensitat, ES; Dear Hunter, NL; Aalborg University Copenhagen, DK. Three associated partners are involved: Impact VZW, Belgium; Struer Tracks / Struer Municipality, Denmark; and Bohm Bohm Room, Sweden.

The project will produce 2 public outcomes in the form of 2 sound art exhibitions, in Roeselare and Barcelona that will consist of installations of individual sound artworks by a group of 10  European sound artists. The exhibitions will be experienced through a digital interface / application implemented by the participating artists and facilitated by the AAU/SMC research group. The process of developing the artworks focuses on the locality, consideration of the local audience and reflecting on cultural identity and the artistic creation is preceded by social mapping. An interactive online  ‘game’ version of the exhibitions will be created.
