Emma Found Sounds: Celebration

Found Sounds is a SoundCloud community feature focusing on some of the most weird and wonderful sounds that can be found on SoundCloud.

With summer shining over half the earth and the Olympics just around the corner, Celebration is upon us. So, this week we’ve rounded up a collection of celebratory sounds to help get you feeling festive.

Nothing says party like the pop of a champagne bottle:

The excitement of a group of people can be infectious. Get amongst it with Jaciotelo:

Audiopimps steps outside the box and takes the cheer out of a cheering crowd, in this powerfully moody track:

But while it’s great to listen to other peoples’ celebrations, it’s even better to get out there and capture the moment yourself!

 

Emma Found Sounds: beat, bang, build

If a construction team parked itself outside your bedroom window, you’d be forgiven for gluing your earlobes together and pulling your sheets over your head. But while construction sounds can be abrasive, they also reveal some magic in the every day. This week we’re showcasing the most raw sounds of a city, alongside others that highlight beauty in the banging.

Ever wondered how modern cranes communicate with ancient ruins? Kitchen Sink Sounds captures the conversation, in all its messy madness.

Schneider TM arranges Berlin’s most organic sounds to draw a connection between construction and electronic music – beat by beat, brick by brick.

Bruce Odland and Sam Auinger have gone a step further, meshing construction sounds with the city at large. Planes, trains and hammers form an urban orchestra, giving today’s industrialized city a voice.

So next time you see a fluorescent vest, a crane, or a bunch of bricks in motion, stop and open your ears – they just might have a story to share.

David Found Sounds: The Sound of Baseball

Found Sounds is a SoundCloud community feature focusing on some of the most weird and wonderful sounds that can be found on SoundCloud. 

The crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd, the sound of hot dog vendors and the “thwack” of a ball hitting a glove: baseball season has started once again!

In this weeks edition of Found Sounds we are going to take a listen to some different sounds that are heard at baseball games! First, listen to the “sound print” recorded at Haight & Ashbury after the San Francisco Giants won the World Series.

Next, we have the sounds of baseball from Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York (arguably one of the most baseball frenzied places in the world!)

Lastly we had not one, but two sounds from Fenway park in Boston! The first sound is after a Homerun was hit and the last is a sound recording during the conclusion of a game.

Thanks everyone for tuning into this weeks Found Sounds! For more Found Sounds, check out our archive here. If you have your own Found Sounds that you would like to contribute to the blog, please add them to our dedicated group here.
