The group creates soundmaps in the city and record sounds using portable devices. The workshop investigates field recording, collecting sounds, editing sounds, and finally they put them in the database and on soundmaps on the www.soundcities.com site. The aim is to learn about field recording and using sound for creative uses, ie concerts, installations and enhanced experience of our surroundings.

This project allows the audience the possibility to remix the hundreds of samples recorded from cities around the world in an online database. The sounds can be listened to, used in performances on laptops, or played on mobiles via wireless networks. The Database is also open so anyone can upload sounds they collect from world cities, thereby making a contribution to the project and making an online sounds archive.
