After announcing this year’s final 15 SoundCloud Community Fellows last week, we’ve introduced their first project tracks this week. We’re excited to be welcoming such brilliant folks whose projects showcase the breadth and uniqueness of sound.
The last five of the 15 Fellows to introduce today will dive into the largest arts and culture festival in the world, audio archiving, the sound of appreciation, facing our demons, and a mobile tour of Detroit, MI!
The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is the largest performing arts festival in the world. Who to cover it than Hayden Cohen, a performance artist who will share stories from performers, attendees along the Royal Mile.
“The Podcast About the Unknown.” Jeff Emtman explores the uncharted territories of the mind to confront the unknown. His first episode “Prisoner’s Cinema” is the phenomena of when an individual spends large amounts of time in the dark. What are the images the mind creates in this phenomena?
Anne Wootton and Bailey Smith want to help independent producers preserve and archive the audio content still left in shoeboxes to dusty drives.
Who doesn’t appreciate a message of appreciation? Stephanie Dub’s project will help all of us record and share our messages of appreciation to others easily.
Laura Herberg is collaborating with local tour organizations to create an audio guide of Detroit attractions accessible using a phone! Take her poll to decide which 5 Detroit sites should be part of the Audio Tour. Her project may inspire you to do the same in your city!
Check back here for all the first introductions from the Fellows. From now until the end of the October, we’ll be sharing all their project updates. Fellows will also be reporting back their own personal experiences of this journey. We hope you join them in unmuting the web!
