I guess most of you might have seen this post on Designing Sound. This is just a reminder to contribute a sound if you can!
If you don't know what I'm talking about:
I’ve been developing a generative sound-scape app in Max/MSP – drop in a bunch of files, specify a few values and it will spit out a sound scape which can run for……ever…..
Since it is that time of the year when most people are going to be celebrating/holidaying/having-a-good-time in some form or the other, I thought it would a good idea if we could create a sonic-mash of these sounds by getting everyone to contribute.
How? Record anything – voices, ambience, fireworks, bottle opening, shouts of joy, sounds of calm, carols, the local pub, a fireplace – anything that you might experience from now till the 5th of January. It could be recordings off a mobile phone, handheld recorder or the new microphone you gifted yourself for Christmas/end of the year. I will close all upload channels on January 5th and on the 9th I’ll post a few of these generative soundscapes made up off all the sounds we’ve recorded.

Happy Holidays and have a blast!
