In 2016, elnicho and Buró-Buró curated a panel as part of the "SOMA Wednesday" program in the context of the elnicho#5 festival. The theme revolved around the relevance of sound in art and the relationship between them. From a socio-cultural point of view, sound is around us and has historically been a vast territory of exploration. How have anthropological, folkloric and vernacular elements influenced our current listening experiences? Music not assimilated in the past is now revisited through contemporary practices and somehow becomes more penetrable into new ears. This booklet surgio´ is based on the discussion raised in SOMA and the theme addressed by the project of notebooks on accessibility. What is the importance of sound and how does it differ between yesterday and today? Is the "new" music only relevant in its current context?
