The main objective of the CONFRASOUND project is to research and analyse the devotional and musical activities of confraternities and guilds in the Iberian world from a multidisciplinary and holistic perspective. Data from archival sources and other written evidence (of all kinds) will be studied through a discrete analytical database (CONFRASOUND) that will be linked to the open digital platform Historical Soundscapes / Paisajes Sonoros Históricos and the Urbanmusics web page.

Working group: Ferrán Escrivà (Universidad Internacional de Valencia); Erika Honisch (Stony Brook University, NY [SUNY]); Elisa Lessa (Universidade do Minho, Braga); Ascensión Mazuela-Anguita (Universidad de Granada); Juan Ruiz Jiménez (Real Academia de Bellas Artes de Granada).
