Romania Sonora, a multimedia, artistic and itinerant project that aims to promote Romania written by Asociaţia Officina Sonora Bucharest. The vision is inspired by the desire to investigate the close relationship between the Romanian territory and its sound memory.
We have explored several cities and villages in Romania. During the trip, we have collected specific materials and record songs, stories and soundscape of each place. The artefacts and recordings are processed and combined in order to create the sound sculptures that will play the prerecorded audio materials.
The sound sculptures, each representative for a place we have explored, symbol of the identity of the territory and the communities, reflect the anthropic landscapes and communities in Romania, recreating a form of cultural memory, a sound map consisting of local identities.
