their sounds ; Palau Solità i Plegamans (Barcelona)

And so we started January’s 2013 edition of TCR :)


First of all I want to say this school, Can Cladellas, is at our hometown! both Laura and I, Jaume grew up in this town called Palau Solità i Plegamans. This makes the whole situation a bit more special for us.


And we started by presenting the project to the participants, in particular the pictures and bell-sounds of the other schools. The bell sound is always a very interesting way to perceive differences and similarities between schools, their locations, history and way of doing.


Since we did not have a lot of time we went straight into checking our objects -beloved objects that the participants were asked to bring from home- and here you can see an example of the variety, a horse named “xocolata” (catalan for chocolate) and a fork that was engraved with the name of its owner, right when she was born.



We started the sonic exploration of our objects collectively as an attempt to help each other go further the hit/scratch basic sounds that we usually come up when we confront the sonic exploration of an object for the first time.




Then we moved to individual exploration of the object, where each participant was asked to come up with at least 5 or 6 sounds (our strategy to, again, attempt for them to avoice hit/scratch sounds… this works sometimes ). And then we went onto recording the sounds one by one.


Listen to some of them below and to the rest visiting our January 2013 Mysounds pack at Freesound, also below. Thanks for stopping by!

    We found your sounds happy, crazy and annoying and dark, big and little and light.

    We even got goose bumps.

    It sounded yellow and dark brown and red. Very colourfull. sometimes it was difficult to find an emotion or colour to the sounds.

    There are definitely some motorbikes, saws, mixers in a plastic bowl, ducks, …

    Thank you for your fantastic sounds.
