Marie SoundCloud Local: Sydney

Today is a very special SoundCloud Local day. Here’s a little back story:

Back in February, we teamed up with Vimeo for a Weekend Project during which Vimeo creators would use a song from SoundClouder Vanchy as the soundtrack to a video they would create over the weekend. The results were stunning and a girl from Sydney named Trixie was a runner-up for the contest. This was her video.

We stayed in touch with Trixie (she’s great!) ever since that day and when we decided to cover Sydney for this week’s SoundCloud Local, we thought “Why not ask Trixie if she’d like to get involved, meet the five SoundClouders below and capture it all with her camera?”; Trixie said “Oh yes!” and off she ran to film the video! It is nothing short of amazing and left us speechless and smiling when we first watched it:

Thank you so much, Trixie, for all the hard work you put into this. It is people like you who make the world (and the web) such a great place. And a huge thanks to Ben, Elizabeth, Fronz Arp, Mark and Andrew, who appeared in the video :)

So not only did we find five amazing SoundCloud users in the lovely city of Sydney but we also caught them all on camera. Learn more about each SoundClouder below!

    Sydney is not and should not be limited to ‘popular’ or ‘contemporary’ music here. ONAN is currently in negotiations with an American label for international release.
