Next week we’ll explore the sound of the World Wide Web. So, think outside the box and submit any sounds that express the nature, feeling or experience of the internet, to the Found Sounds group. The best of the bunch will be showcased in next week’s post!
Earlier this year, we introduced our new audio series ‘SoundCloud Speaks‘, where we take an in-depth look into stories from the ‘cloud, and the users behind them. Today, we’re happy to present our third installment.
In this episode, Evan spoke to Steven Leckart, writer for Wired and Pop-Up Magazine, about how he uses audio recording (and SoundCloud) as part of both his work, and his personal life. For Steven, capturing sound isn’t just about recording words to transcribe, but saving a moment in time.
For more from Steven, head to his site, or Twitter.
‘SoundCloud Speaks‘ is your show, so let us know what you’d like to hear. If you have a story you’d like to tell, a question you’d like answered, or want to recommend a friend’s sounds for us to share, get in touch by either leaving a comment.
You can hear all previous episodes here.
Thanks again for listening, hope you enjoy!
