Border Soundscapes is a project that arises from the need to explore the field of Sound Studies from a perspective of rhetoric and its intersection with philosophical postures that comes from the aesthetics, logic, and ethics of sound. Our wide-open laboratory is located on the border between Mexico and the United States, specifically in the sister cities, Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, and El Paso, Texas. As an initiative focused on cultural heritage through sounds, this project seeks to become a platform in which the sounds that characterize the Paso del Norte region are housed. We firmly believe that, over time, our contribution will benefit future generations of the community as a reinforcer of knowledge of their own history. For many years we have been taught to learn through the image and the written word, but rarely to fully use our senses to improve our literacy experience, for that reason Border Soundscapes arises to position itself as a platform that seeks to nourish itself constantly with the sounds of the region, as well as its reflection behind each acoustic ecology.
