CULTURE ICON.png

This space was founded in order to generate a sound archive of the people that inhabit our planet, unifying the social, cultural, historical, ideological, political, economic, religious, and artistic aspects that influence our worldview. The sonic universe is formed as a system that encodes the information through which our society builds meaning, a particular system of human interaction . We experience the world from a sonic dimension, learning to interact with others through the sounds that surround us. We inhabit sounds and in exchange they shape our being in the world.

The QÚO library invites phonographers from all over the world to share a piece of thought in a space of free reflection & unification.

The context of each piece of sound is very important to us, which is why we include the following detailed information with each phonogram:

  • RECORDING DATE

  • RECORDING PLACE

  • EXACT SITE COORDINATES

  • LANGUAGE OR DIALECT (IF NECESSARY)

  • PHONOGRAM NAME (Specified by the phonographer)

  • PHOTOGRAPH OF THE SITE (Optional)

  • THE PHONOGRAPHER'S NAME
