When music becomes noise. Sound and music which people in Barcelona hear but don't want to listen to

AbstractBarcelona has particular characteristics that often make people consider it a noisy city. It is large, with one-and-a-half million inhabitants living in a relatively small area, which makes it one of the most densely populated cities of Europe. Furthermore, Barcelona's mild climate permits extensive life outdoors, and it has a high density of motor traffic. City officials deny that Barcelona is a noisier city than comparable ones like Rome, Milan or Madrid, for instance. Regarding acoustic pollution, it is not easy to make comparisons, but the fact is that according to the first sonic map of Barcelona, which was made between 1985 and 1990, 47.4% of the surface of the city was exposed to more than 70 dBA.
