belsentire sites are places from which it is possible to enjoy a particular listening for the beauty or rarity of all or some of the sounds present.

The Centro Ricerche per l’Ecologia Acustica (CREA) association has launched a project of mapping the Vigevano soundscape, with the aim of discovering and enhancing the belsentire places and the acoustic oases of the town.

Composers, DJs, sound designers, and every kind of sound manipulators from all over the world, are invited to take part in the VIGEVANO SOUNDSCAPE musical composition contest. The leading concept is to use the sounds of the town of Vigevano (pv) in order to compose electronic or electroacoustic music.

A large sample of sounds from the Vigevano soundscape is provided by CREA. Composers have to use at least some of these sounds to create their pieces of music.

All the works received will be heard by a special jury, and the selected ones will be published in collaboration with the accannone record label in digital format on the most important streaming platforms (Spotify, Amazon Music, iTunes etc.) as well as on the CREA website.

The author of the work judged best, will be awarded a prize consisting of a voucher of € 250 to be used at the "Musical Box Studio" in Vigevano for the mixing and / or mastering of their songs. Eventually also on line, with no additional costs.
