SoundTransit.nl: a collaborative soundscape

Umatic.nl is proud to announce the launch of SoundTransit.nl.


SoundTransit.nl is an online, collaborative soundscape project dedicated
to field recording and phonography. On this site, you can BOOK a sonic
transit through a wide range of different locations recorded from around
the world, or you can SEARCH the database for specific sounds by
keyword, artist, country or location. If you are a phonographer, you can
also contribute your recordings for others to enjoy. The Creative
Commons Attribution license encourages the sharing and reuse of all
sounds on this website.

The basis of SoundTransit.nl lies in the international Phonography
community. Phonography is the art of recording sounds from the
environment around us, with an emphasis on the unintentional sounds
which often go unnoticed in our daily lives. The phonographers who
collect and share their work here have interests ranging from recordings
of natural or urban environments to improvised situations and soundwalks
to the resonance of solid objects or the Earth's atmosphere.

If you would like to join SoundTransit, please send an email with the
following information:
TO: derek at umatic.nl
SUBJECT: Join SoundTransit
BODY: Short description of the sounds you would like to contribute, and
a link to your webpage, bio or other personal information.

SoundTransit.nl is a joint production of Sara Kolster, Derek Holzer,
Marc Boon and the international Phonography community, with support from
De Waag Society for Old and New Media and the Digital Pioneers. Thanks
also go out to Gerard van Dongen, Yannick Dauby, Menno van den Bergh,
Carsten Stabenow and the Garage Festival for their help and encouragement.
