Interstitial Space

Interstitial Space is a research project that focuses on the differences between the natural world and the urban world. This project captures the existing reality with sound recordings taken from the intersection between the two worlds, trying to highlight the existing topics in the field of field recordings and soundscapes. The aim is to make a sound archive of these areas that are in constant change and to produce sound and graphic documentation of these landscapes, which are, in many cases, zones with strong contrasts and a reflection of the changes that occur at the social, political and economic levels.

Thresholds and borders are impossible places, full of new possibilities, new landscapes, new blank pages in which to imagine new modes of listening. From this iconoclastic view of the Romantic, bucolic landscape, this project presents a series of recordings made in the natural spaces around the Llobregat Delta and Barcelona International Airport, both located in El Prat de Llobregat, which is unquestionably one of the areas with the greatest biological and urban contrasts in the vicinity of Barcelona.
