In many European cities one can hear the sounds of church bells ringing, but each bell has it’s own sound. With the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 as an incentive, the Sharing Heritage initiative has started a project to collect the sounds of all bells in the country. All who are interested can participate and add their local home sound to the digital network.

The project, with the name Create Soundscape aims to let everybody hear the differences in sounds of the German church bells. The outcome is a Bell Finder, which has been entirely crowdmapped.
