The soundscape is the set of sounds. The soundscape is an immaterial heritage and is part of the social identity. For the indigenous community, the soundscape is the social memory of a rural community.
Day to day, thousands of sounds of the soundscape change or disappear irretrievably. The main causes are the social changes brought about by the introduction of technologies, lack of sensitivity to and knowledge of the value of the soundscape, etc. The project 100 Sounds of the Purépecha soundscape sends a call to the population to identify the sounds that have emotional value in the construction of the identity. The Purépechas is an indigenous Mexican group from Morelia. The Purépechas has an active participation in this Project. They propose the sounds to be included from characters, places, works and trades, sound environments, rituals, traditional parties, etc. The research group is going to select 100 sounds. These sounds will be recorded and preserved in the library of the community. This project aims to explore how the link of the indigenous community through their soundscape can lay the bases for the social recognition and protection of the intangible heritage of sounds. Also in this Project we would like to investigate the relation between the soundscape as a living legacy of the Purepecha community.
