This is a collection of sounds from different parts of the world. Right now, I’m collecting sounds from cities but I’m open to other sounds as well.
Anywhere. Really, anywhere. A busy street, a quiet suburb, the mall, your balcony etc. These are in-the-moment captures of the sounds around you and not something you prepare for.
No. Please don’t talk during the recordings. Murmured or distant conversations in your surroundings are A-OK.
30-35 seconds is ideal. When they are listed on the website, they will be trimmed down to 30 seconds.
Because longer clips are boring.
iPhones have a Voice Memo app that is perfect for this. Samsung phones have Samsung Voice Recorder app. Easy Voice Recorder is an Android app that has great reviews. There are tons of sound recording apps out there, use anything that you like.
Mail them over to me at email@example.com. Don’t forget to include the location & time of day it was recorded!
I have some technical restrictions right now. As soon as I figure those out, I’ll add this functionality.
m4a and mp3 are file formats that I prefer but you can send over wav, acc, ogg, wma, etc.
Not a lot. This is just repository.
Well then I’m doing another one.
Oh, I have so many plans! For now, I’m keeping it simple. Expect new features and upgrades every month.
All the images are fetched from Unsplash.com. Each image is random but tied (as closely as possible) to the location of the clip.
I’m trying to keep it super simple right now. But I’m open to ideas. Send them over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, of course! Get in touch at email@example.com.
