About the project Edit

The collaborative project Territoires Sonores proposes creating original sound materials (known as sound treats) that speak to the different facets of a small area of Finistère: le Cap de la chèvre.

These multiple and varied materials are made with and prepared by the inhabitants. Project participants are trained in sound techniques. They interview they produce their own soundtracks. Their media are published online under a Creative Commons licence. Participants are asked to listen along the marked pedestrian paths in the area. Therefore, walkers have access to rich, varied and original content through their own MP3 players, phones or rented broadcasting equipment.


In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

In 2006 when the project leaders launched this project in conjunction with Wiki-Brest, they were not aware of referenced projects like those on the net. Sound walks are very different from traditional audioguide walks. The approach is sensitive and intimate. Materials are co-produced with and by volunteers and residents. The multiplicity of actors fosters creativity and innovation. Project participants share their knowledge and expertise and co-write broadcasting guides. These technical materials allow every individual to engage in the process.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

This project creates meaning, fosters a relationship between stakeholders in the area and promotes the dissemination and sharing of knowledge. This support process enriches the knowledge and skills of each person. It values the work and the creations of local stakeholders.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The number of stakeholders interested in the project is shown by the growing number of external requests. Associations, communities and individuals are attracted to the form, content and approach. This project can be implemented in another area under certain conditions: i) the size of the territory, ii) the interest shared by actors, iii) their level of involvement and iv) the coordinator's role, etc.
