What you'll do
My goal is you to learn, interact with locals and enjoy what Quito´s old town has you to offer. Workshops: -Architectural acoustics of Quito´s old town : We will visit 4 buildings (Iglesia de la Compañia, Carmen Alto museum, Metropolitan Cultural Center and The City Museum), i´ll tell about history of this places, construction techniques, restoration process that has been made, and the coolest part let you hear how the acoustics behave inside, and how the architecture influence in sound and we´ll chat about acoustic heritage conservation. During the visit, there are going to be challenges to be solved by you or in group, as example: explanation of the behavior of the sound within those spaces, design thinking for acoustic renovation, material desing, just to name a few. - Sound and acoustics for film applications: We will visit 4 building (Intead of Carmen Alto museum a parking lot :) ). During the visit you will have to change your "hobby" with the other crew members, form sound recorder, film, anchorman, voice effects, just to name a few. Challenge: Make a binaural sound recording for a terror film. Winner of the workshop get´s a free beer.

Where you'll be
Each place has been selected due to their wonderfull Acoustics (in some cases not so wonderfull, they need improvements), but in just 4 blocks you can enter to 20 different type of soundscapes, interact with them (make noises, screams, explore materials sound). Acoustics it´s a new carrer in Ecuador, many people doesn´t know about noise and the social impact that it has, so my ide behaind this project is to creat social awereness, trhough videos.
