is a community that specializes in sounds found in nature, in the world around us, and in the electronic realm. Not music, generally, but atmospheric, raw recordings of the world around us. Sounds interesting?! Join the community
Please feel free to :
- Submit your own recordings of nature, cities, found sounds, sound effects, or samples.
- Point out other interesting websites that feature soundscapes, recordings, or are "soundscape-friendly".
- Ask questions and share advice on how to make better environmental recordings, with discussions on recording media, microphones, and outdoor recording techniques.
Of direct interest to those of you who are filmmakers, I hope to use this community to jumpstart a free online archive of ambient/environmental sounds, ideally hosted on archive.org
. This will hopefully give filmmakers, musicians, and others a freely reusable library of sounds they can use for independent projects.
