World Listening Day is an annual celebration held on July 18 to promote the importance of conscious and attentive listening in daily life. This event is organized by the World Listening Project, an organization dedicated to education and research on sound and listening.
The goal of World Listening Day is to raise awareness about the acoustic environment, fostering a greater awareness of the sounds around us and how they influence our lives and the environment.
This day also aims to highlight the importance of listening as a tool for understanding and connection between people, as well as for environmental care, helping to identify and mitigate noise pollution and other sound-related issues.
The celebration includes activities such as soundwalks, field recordings, workshops, concerts, and other forms of sound-related art and education.
This year, we went to the town of Escucha in the Bajo Aragón region, in the Cuencas Mineras district, to honor the name of the town and… listen.


Show 983: Oniric Reverberations (TEAFM Radio Workshop)

Oniric reverberations refer to the echoes and residual effects of dreams or dream-like experiences. The term “oniric” is derived from the Greek word “oneiros,” meaning dream. When we delve into the realm of dreams, we often encounter a surreal and enigmatic landscape that can leave a lasting impact on our waking consciousness. The concept of oniric reverberations explores the idea that dreams possess a lingering influence that extends beyond the dream state itself.
Dreams are a fascinating and intricate aspect of human experience. They are a complex interplay of emotions, memories, fears, and desires, creating a unique tapestry of imagery and sensations. When we awaken from a vivid dream, its effects can reverberate through our thoughts, emotions, and actions, shaping our perceptions of reality.

Radio art is an aural art form made with sound. Artists use radio technology (i.e. radio transmissionairwaves) to communicate artistic compositions for interpretation – exposing their audience to alternate means to experiencing their art through sound verses visualization.


Radio Art contributes to new media art – a digitally driven art movement growing in response to the informative technological revolution we live in. “From the artist’s point of view radio is an environment to be entered into and acted upon, a site for various cultural voices to meet, converse, and merge in. These artists cross disciplines, raid all genres and recontextualize them into hybrids.”

This piece is a compendium of works carried out in the Sound Art course of the TEA FM Radio School held in Zaragoza in the spring of 2023.


Show 935: Can we talk, dear AI? (by Chuse Fernandez, TEA FM Radio Workshop)

Artificial Intelligence is surrounding our lives almost without realizing it. Perhaps we are at that turning point and even of “no return”.

What we are going to listen to next is a simple experiment in which we are going to talk about train travel with an AI. Will we be able to engage in a real conversation or, on the contrary, will we be talking to a mirror or one of those talking dolls with engraved phrases?

We are watching the death of art take place before our eyes. If creative jobs are no longer safe from machines, even the most highly skilled jobs are in danger of becoming obsolete. What will we have left?


Revered Canadian composer and author R. Murray Schafer has died Aug. 14 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease at age 88.

Regularly described by colleagues as a man of extraordinary innovation and communicative ability, Schafer was one of Canada’s most prominent composers.

His works reflected an interest in myth, ritual, audience participation, and ecology and environmentalism’s aural elements. His best-known works were large, ambitious outdoor pieces that incorporated elements from the environment as an integral part of the performance. Examples include The Princess of the Stars that premiered in 1981 by New Music Concerts, and Music for Wilderness Lake, written for 12 trombonists spaced around a lake.

Many of his ideas were informed by a lifelong fascination with the “soundscape”, a term coined by Michael Southworth, and popularised by R. Murray Schafer in his influential book The Tuning of the World, published in 1977.

The book followed the World Soundscape Project (WSP), which he founded while teaching at Simon Fraser University in 1969. “[WSP grew out of Schafer’s initial attempt to draw attention to the sonic environment through a course in noise pollution, as well as from his personal distaste for the more raucous aspects of Vancouver’s rapidly changing soundscape,” writes colleague Barry Truax.

show 844: GOYA 275 by TEA FM

Francisco de Goya es considerado uno de los más grandes artistas de la historia, considerado como el padre del Arte Contemporáneo. Este año 2021 se conmemora el 275 aniversario del nacimiento de este aragonés universal.

Es indudable que Francisco de Goya fue un artista en continuo contacto con las ideas de su tiempo, y de forma más concreta con las ilustradas, a través de todos sus canales usuales de difusión: las tertulias, las relaciones de amistad, las obras literarias o la prensa periódica.

Descubramos a través de la combinación de inspiraciones sonoras basadas en las Pinturas Negras de Goya, el camino variante de la luz, como nacimiento de una fuerza similar a la vida, atravesando las etapas ineludibles del enigma en que radica la existencia tal y como la experimentamos. Desde la génesis hasta las estancias que nos desentrañan, alcanza las tinieblas del sueño, para aproximarse a su final. Donde todo concluye y desaparece. Aunque bien pudiera ser que emergiera en algún tiempo, más allá de la conciencia.

Francisco de Goya is considered one of the greatest artists in history, considered the father of Contemporary Art. This year 2021 marks the 275th anniversary of the birth of this universal Aragonese.

There is no doubt that Francisco de Goya was an artist in continuous contact with the ideas of his time, and more specifically with the illustrated ones, through all his usual channels of diffusion: social gatherings, friendship relations, literary works or the periodical press.

Let us discover through the combination of sound inspirations based on Goya’s Black Paintings, the variant path of light, as the birth of a force similar to life, going through the inescapable stages of the enigma in which existence lies as we experience it. . From the genesis to the rooms that unravel us, it reaches the darkness of the dream, to approach its end. Where everything ends and disappears. Although it could well be that it emerged at some time, beyond consciousness.

Show 794: More than a Pandemia (TEA FM)

Accelerated by a virus, we have suddenly found ourselves in a possible future. The existen-tial threat appears as if through a magnifying glass, allowing us to perceive the state of the world with increased clarity. With astonishment, we have seen political taboos and unques-tioned assumptions falling by the wayside, allowing our institutions to take action. All of a sudden, the tried and tested arguments of interest-driven politics – economic constraints, technological barriers, unchanging behavioural patterns, individual responsibility – no long-er seem to be guiding the decision-making. Behind this is a growing awareness that the cur-rent socio-political range of actions will be insufficient to cope with future crises, which are just as threatening, but of a completely different nature.

While the world is under pressure to emerge from the coronavirus crisis as intact as possi-ble, the virus has catapulted us to a crossroads. Can we rise to the challenge of the corona-virus phenomenon with answers from yesterday? Or will we look for the answers of tomor-row which also fulfil the various challenges surrounding sustainable development?

The virus has made it clear: the future is now

Show 768: El Mundo Grita / The World Screams by TEAFM & RESONAR & CPR


It was early October, just a few weeks before the social explosion that rocked Chile in the whole length of its strange geography. An explosion that, in late November, resulted in over 20 deaths, hundreds of mutilated, thousands injured, an indeterminate number of detainees, torture, sexual assault and countless atrocities committed by the police and the armed forces. Just before this shift, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera spoke about the convulsions that swept the rest of the region. He then introduced Chile as an oasis of peace and tranquility in the middle of the storm.

On November 18th in the Main Square of Cochabamba, mobilization against the supreme decree that gives impunity to the military. By D.E. from Cochabamba.

They ask for justice for those killed, they call the international press to cover and the local press to stop being biased. They also ask for Añez’s resignation and Evo’s return to pacify the country.

In Colombia, the mobilizations formally began with the massive national strike on Thursday, November 21, a day that ended with an unprecedented and massive cacerolazo that resonated strongly throughout the night in different corners of Colombia. The objective was to claim the peaceful protest that at the end of the afternoon had been tarnished by some riots. From then on, various calls began to multiply, more or less spontaneous and mostly festive, which began to have their own scores.

Latin America screams, but also other places in the world. It is time to hear the cries of citizenship, which asks for respect, justice, future. The world screams. Do we hear it?

This creative radio documentary is the first step in the new path that TEA FM, CPR Spain and RESONAR start together. With audios collected in different demonstrations and protests in several cities in Latin America and Europe in october and november 2019.

Show 741: Tell them not to kill me. A mexican tale by Juan Rulfo. TEA FM Radio School.

Juan Rulfo, in full Juan Nepomuceno Carlos Pérez Rulfo Vizcaíno, (born May 16, 1917, Acapulco, Mexico — died January 7, 1986, Mexico City), Mexican writer who is considered one of the finest novelists and short-story creators in 20th-century Latin America, though his production—consisting essentially of two books—was very small.

Because of the themes of his fiction, he is often seen as the last of the novelists of the Mexican Revolution. He had enormous impact on those Latin American authors, including Gabriel García Márquez, who practiced what has come to be known as magic realism, but he did not theorize about it.

Rulfo was an avowed follower of the American novelist William Faulkner.

As a child growing up in the rural countryside, Rulfo witnessed the latter part (1926–29) of the violent Cristero rebellion in western Mexico. His family of prosperous landowners lost a considerable fortune. When they moved to Mexico City, Rulfo worked for a rubber company and as a film scriptwriter. Many of the short stories that were later published in El llano en llamas (1953; The Burning Plain) first appeared in the review Pan; they depict the violence of the rural environment and the moral stagnation of its people.

In them Rulfo first used narrative techniques that later would be incorporated into the Latin American new novel, such as the use of stream of consciousness, flashbacks, and shifting points of view. Pedro Páramo (1955) examines the physical and moral disintegration of a laconic cacique (boss) and is set in a mythical hell on earth inhabited by the dead, who are haunted by their past transgressions.
