SONOTOMIA is a European project that gathers two concepts in a very innovative way, the intangible and tangible cultural heritage.
Music, biodiversity and historical sites and buildings are connected with sound in different ways, as sound is a powerful tool to link and connect the past with future, just as cultural heritage does. The values and unique characteristics of shared cultural heritage can be captured and transmitted through shared sounds.
As sounds are widespread and accessible to anyone, promoting and disseminating cultural aspects through captured and modified sound elements will be the core of this project. The heritage can be preserved and promoted through sounds that can inspire future generations to value and cherish more the people and environment around them.
