¡Splash! Así suena el verano

LA COSA

¡Splash! Así suena el verano

La COSA, Centro Organizado de Sonido Ambulante (The Organised Centro for Ambulant Sound), will be setting off on a tour of Madrid’s swimming pools this summer of 2022. The Chico-Trópico caravan-recording studio will be stopping off at five of the city’s pools as part of the Veranos de la Villa festival programme with two main objectives: on the one hand, to record sounds and stories associated with these summertime spaces, their present, their past and their imaginaries, and on the other and as a community, to generate the song of the summer on board La COSA, working with the people enjoying the pools to produce one or more fresh, summery and catchy hits.

The name of the project is based on the characteristic onomatopoeia of a splash of water, a way of emphasising the aspect of sound which they will be approaching from a fun and fresh point of view. The various activations are aimed at the general public at the swimming pools and Chico-Trópico will be encouraging intergenerational work, the participation of families and all sorts of people, as well as sound and musical play in community.
