Jane Community Fellows: DecodeDC, Sound School, Guidebooks

After announcing this year’s final 15 SoundCloud Community Fellows last week, we’re introducing their first project tracks this week.  We’re excited to be welcoming such brilliant folks whose projects showcase the breadth and uniqueness of sound.

We have the final group of Fellows to introduce tomorrow. Today, welcome three projects that facilitate critical thinking, learning and creativity in collaborations.

DecodeDC

“It’s time to stop colluding with government,” says Andrea Seabrook, former NPR Congressional Correspondent. Andrea shared with Politico why she left the experience of covering Capitol Hill. Read the piece here and listen to a great intro of the first episode of DecodeDC “The House of (Mis)representatives.”

Guidebooks

A UK-Germany connected band will take sounds submitted by the SoundCloud community to create a story together, where it will feel “like being in a band with everyone.” The final tracks will compose of their 4th full-length album “From Where I’m Standing.”

Start dropping your original sounds and recordings with them here.

We’ve got the final set of fantastic folks to introduce tomorrow. If you missed the last introductions, check back here. 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!

Jane Community Fellows: From Hear To There, The Truth, Tiny Spark

We announced this year’s final 15 SoundCloud Community Fellows on the blog last week. We’re excited to be welcoming such brilliant folks whose projects showcase the breadth and uniqueness of sound.

For the rest of this week, we’ll be sharing the first tracks of each Fellow’s project, so let’s get started. Three New Yorkers have joined the fellowship. Read more about the “motley crew” of local NY fellows from Brooklyn and Manhattan in this BetaBeat feature here.

From Hear to There

Nadia Wilson’s project is an “audio ethnography” of the NYC subway. Nadia will capture the stories and soundscapes that emerge, from the A to the Z line.

The Truth

Jonathan Mitchell’s The Truth podcast is an audio drama, “a movie for your ears.” Throughout his Fellowship, immerse yourself in a political drama series based on the upcoming elections with a Halloween twist. Spooky!
