The Universitat Politècnica de València is the only Spanish technological university that besides being a reference in the scientific-technical sphere has a Faculty of Fine Arts which is a statewide reference. Both of them have come together to create Soundcool, based on mobile devices for music and art education with great potential, as the creator of the famous Audacity software system Prof. Roger Dannenber said. With the pedagogical collaboration of the Universitat de València, Soundcool has become an emerging application that is already being used in several European countries. This project, for three years, aims to develop its visual part, generating a support to make it a completely free tool software, as well as promoting the use of the application in colleges and music schools for audiovisual and collaborative creation of right.
European project Erasmus+ KA201
“Tecnología al servicio del aprendizaje y la creatividad: tejiendo redes europeas a través de la creación musical colaborativa” (Technology to support learning and creativity: building European networks through collaborative music creation) (2015-2017). Led by Elizabeth Carrascosa, with reference 2015-1-ES01-KA201-016139.
This project is the strategic partnership of three centers of Spain (“CEIP 9 d’Octubre“ of Alcàsser, “IES Arabista Ribera” of Carcaixent and the Federation of Music Societies of Valencia) and 4 centers from different European countries: the “Liceo de Arte Baia Mare” from Romania; the “Instituto Comprehensivo Tremestieri” of Messina, Italy; the cultural association “Parco Salvatore Quasimodo” from Sicily and “Agrupamento de escolas de PONTE DE SOR” (Portugal).
During the academic years between 2015 and 2017 these centers will carry out different interdisciplinary and collaborative activities based on music creation and video-creation using Soundcool. The project includes exchange of students, the recording of a DVD and the publication of methodological guidelines for the platform.
Telefonica Foundation and the Universitat Politècnica de València co-financed in 2017 the development of a technological demonstrator of the Soundcool OSC App for mobile phones collaborating in the acquisition of Android and iOS mobile devices and other expenses.
