Sounds of the world is a project of sound creation carried by an international network of cultural actors and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Its scope is to propose a digital platform dedicated to exploring the sounds of cities. The project wishes to develop practice and listening skills.
Indeed most people are familiar with looking at the world, but less familiar with exploring its audio dimension. Yet, the harangues of market sellers in Dakar, children screaming in a Paris square, or the St. Mark's bells midnight-ringing in Venice, all relate our daily lives with an evocative power even stronger than pictures.

On the long run the project want to build a sound library and make it available to experts and professionals working in the field of sounds and audio matter: cultural actors, anthropologists, historians, geographers…

Sounds of the world wants also to set up a web site (audio postcards) available to all citizens in order to raise awareness about the sounds and the audio stimulations surrounding all of us. The project combines a range of different actors: Radio France Internationale, the conservatory «Benedetto Marcello» of Venice, the residents’ association «Bruxelles nous appartient - Brussel behoort ons toe» of Brussels, and the journalism school E-jicom in Dakar.

To realize the project : 2 workshops in Paris; 4 creative training about sounds in Paris, Brussels, et Dakar; 1 concert in Venice with all the sounds recording during the project; 1 online platform gathering the sound creation.
