OK, another cool link (can you tell I’ve spend the afternoon going through my “saved for later” feeds?)
It is called Phonambient and its run by a multidisciplinary team, and here’s the description from their “About” page: Phonambient is a project for the documentation and transformation of the contemporary sound heritage. It intends to register and preserve a digital database with sounds that characterize a given city or region, including soundscapes, local sounds, musical extracts, phonetics and phonoloy. The archive will be made freely available for consultation and use in creative and scientific contexts (…).
If you’re curious, here’s what my city sounds like. Braga, Portugal (cannot link to the exact place).
