Welcome to Sounds of Europe, a platform for field recording. The blog of the website will travel to a different European country every month where a local organisation or artist will be responsible for maintaining it. Each country´s particular context and practices with regards to field recording will be explored and presented in a personal way.
Stijn Dickel / Aifoon / Gent / The City Rings

Stijn Dickel is the initiator of Aifoon, a very successful and innovative educational art organization in Gent. They
give workshops in schools and other places for children, teenagers and adults in which they work with environmental and everyday’s sounds, teach them to listen to their surrounding and work with it in a creative way.
Aifoon is also the initiator of The City Rings, together with Sons de Barcelona and Sonic Postcards (London), in which an exchange takes place between children and teenagers in different countries and which is integrated in Sounds of Europe as the workshop part. Through tis context hopefully the angle will be even more opened to other countries, beyond the three organisations involved at the moment.
