The Barcelona Laptop Orchestra, resident orchestra of Phonos, was created in 2008 by the Department of Sonology of the Catalan School of Music (Barcelona). The group is made up of professors and students of this institution and researchers of the Music Technology Group of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona), currently under the coordination of José M. Comajuncosas. The group wants to be a meeting point for sound researchers, digital luthiers, performers and composers, with the aim of focusing on the development of new musical control interfaces and new paradigms for network interpretation, with computers assuming a central role, But not exclusive. The repertoire includes reinterpretations of classics of electroacoustic music and own pieces centered on improvisation.

- Drone (Cárthach Ò Nuanáin) 
- Additive (Josep M Comajuncosas)

Music performance and learning to play a musical instrument have been showed to provide several benefits for acquiring a number of non-musical skills, e.g. social and cognitive skills. Due to lack of fine motor skills, some people are often incapable of learning to play a musical instrument and thus, the benefits of music learning are inaccessible to them. In this concert we introduce several adaptive digital musical interfaces which allow everyone to play and compose music. The  concert will include several pieces written or arranged for these interfaces and performed by people with motor disabilities.

This concert is part of the 2nd International Workshop on Quantitative and Qualitative Music Therapy Research.

Urban Nature Sounds is an educational project, for environmental awareness and citizen participation. From experiential workshops, we propose the participants to explore the sound environment of some urban natural spaces within the city of Barcelona with the objective of discovering the biodiversity present in the city, understanding the coexistence between natural and urban spaces and generating environmental awareness in Citizenship through these participatory activities

http://bioblitzbcn.museuciencies.cat/events/sons-de-la-natura-3/

Second session:

Joint session for participants of the workshops 1, 2 and 3. (TBA)

FIRST SESSION: Field work.

The first part of the workshops consists of presenting the characteristics of the spaces in which the activity will take place, and also presents the dynamics of the activity: objectives, sounds that can be found and tools to be used. Portable recorders and headphones will be distributed among the participants and the operation will be explained in order to do augmented listening and recordings. The registration cards will also be distributed, which contain the itineraries and serve to record the data corresponding to each recording that is made.

The participants, following an itinerary led by the trainers of the workshops, who will orient them on the sounds that can be heard, and will ask for attention in some concrete sounds. Some directed listening and recording exercises will be performed and from there participants will decide which sounds they consider relevant and will record them with the recorders. After each recording, they will note the location where the recording was made and the description of the sound on the recording binnacle. The trainers will give specific information on the animal species that will be listening and will share information cards of these species.

SECOND SESSION: Audio editing and uploading to Freesound.org in order to create a sound map.

This part will take place in a classroom of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, who collaborates in this project. Participants will listen to the records they have made and decide which are the most relevant and interesting. The sounds will be edited for inclusion on the Freesound.org website. Depending on where they were registered, the sounds are geolocated and automatically placed on a map. The sounds are shared under Creative Commons licenses so that they are accessible to other people and can be reused. As a result, a sound map will be created, which will be added to the Phonos website along with all the workshop information.  

This second session is optional, all participants of the tallers of the first session can participate.

Instructors:

Eloïsa Matheu (trainer): Biologist expert in sounds of nature. Long career as a nature sounds recordist, has produced a wide collection of CDs with animal sounds and concerts of nature, as well as sonorizations of centers of natural spaces. She imparts workshops to get to know the nature by its sounds. At the moment she works in the Fonoteca of the Museum of Natural Sciences of Barcelona and participates in different scientific projects related to Bioacoustics.

Ilaria Sartori (trainer): Doctor in history and analysis of musical cultures, specialized in working with sounds. She teaches workshops on creating sound maps and is part of diverse groups that work in sound and creativity.

Workshop in collaboration with Trinijove Foundation

Tue, 05/09/2017 - 11:00
Thursday, 2017, May 11 - 11:00 On Thursday, May 11, the Community Social Art Center of the Trinijove Foundation will participate in a collaboration workshop with the Phonos Foundation.
  This activity works with the sound world, the noise that belong to every person and their identity: it is a workshop that proposes working with sounds as a mechanism to better know and preserve the cultural wealth of the city of Barcelona. Participants search and record those sounds that identify their own cultural identities and those of their neighborhood.   The resulting recordings will be uploaded to Freesound and will be used in 2 different formats respectively, for a sound installation within a summer exhibition of Trinijove and for a radio broadcast. Every Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., you will be able to listen live to the 4 groups of participants in Radio Trinitat Vella 91.6 FM.
