sound maps of spain


This past weekend was in Madrid for the Sonikas festival where I performed. While there, I learned about several sound-mapping projects in Spain. As some know, I contribute to Radio Aporee Maps, a growing collection of sounds from around the world which are playable in several ways. The projects linked below are more regional, focusing on specific areas within Spain. With sound-mapping being an expanding phenomenon, it will be interesting to see how it develops.

Special thanks to Mikel for introducing me to these projects and to Alfonso, Juan Carlos and Molino for their sincere organizational efforts. Below is a recording of a pet shop in Madrid that specialized in singing birds.
