Edward Found Sounds: How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood

Found Sounds is a SoundCloud community feature focusing on some of the most weird and wonderful sounds that can be found on SoundCloud. Count on new installments with some of our favorite sounds each Tuesday!

This week I cut through the sounds of the SoundCloud forest to hear the noises of the elements that keep us alive, trees! We use wood in various different ways and each use has it’s own distinctive sounds. The shouts of timber from afar as a tree falls from its home or the sounds of DIY as you hammer and saw your plank of wood in to whatever you wish!

Here’s the sounds of user Daigoro hard at work in Hungary with the wood choppers.

Daigoro recorded this sound using a Binaural ECM, meaning you will be hearing this as you would have at the origin of sound, due to the special arrangement of the recording equipment. Every chop as hard hitting as the last!

One of the most grueling tasks of the winter is collecting wood for the fire, sawing through, back and forth, to provide us our warmth in the cold months.The user CameronMusic, who is trained in audio post production collects sound effects and puts them on his SoundCloud account with a Creative Commons license for any one to use.

TIIIIMBER!

Here’s a great recording taken by The Recordist, of a rotten cotton wood tree falling in his back yard. This sound is such a great reminder of the strengths of mother nature, (reminding me I would never want to get in the way of it).

That’s all for this week’s Found Sounds! Tune in next week for more crazy sounds from the ‘Cloud.

    It depends whether you are talking about European or African woodchucks. http://soundcloud.com/thommyc/discussing-wood-with-siri
