The international call SoundTales moves from JES!&Co. project and  is addressed to sound designers and musicians for the creation of a soundscape composition, an electroacoustic musical composition, originating from sound recordings made  in  factory environments.

On the 26st of January 2016 sounds from Gagliardini srl company’s carpentry and hardware departments (Marche, Italy) were recorded. These tracks are stored in the archive-folder to download online. Participants to the call can download this folder containing the recorded audio files and create their own soundscape composition.

The best track, selected at the incontestable discretion of the jury composed by Gianmarco Del Re, Matteo Meda, Alessio Ballerini, Sabrina Maggiori and Michela Aquili will be awarded with a cultural recognition amounting to 250 €.
