Jane SoundCloud Speaks #6 – Collaborating and Connecting with SoundCloud Community Fellows Guidebooks & NightBus Radio

Last year, we introduced our audio series ‘SoundCloud Speaks‘, where we take an in-depth look into stories from the ‘cloud and the users behind them. Today in the new year, we’re excited to present our sixth installment. 

In this episode of SoundCloud Speaks, we explore the different meanings of collaborations that take place online and offline. What are the challenges and triumphs of collaborating that change the music-making progress?

We asked Jack Kennedy and the band Guidebooks whose projects were among 15 others that inspire, engage and communicate the unique breadth of sound as part of the 2012 SoundCloud Community Fellowship.

Jack’s NightBus Radio traveled across the US by Greyhound Bus, capturing the community and culture of the different cities while making music with locals. Guidebooks took sound bites contributed directly from the SoundCloud community to lay the foundation for their finished EP, “From Where I’m Standing.

If you have SoundCloud collaborations that you’re working on or are proud of, share it with us in a timed comment or leave a comment on this post.

David SoundCloud Speaks #5 – Storycorps

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 fifth installment. The producer for this episode was Jayme Catsouphes.

When StoryCorps began back in 2003, it started with the basic idea that everybody has a story. And it matters. And all those great stories out there need to be told, recorded and archived. To date, StoryCorps has visited all 48 contiguous states and collected over 40,000 interviews.

In this episode of SoundCloud Speaks, the senior producer for StoryCorps, Michael Garofalo talks about the importance of listening and storytelling.

The interviews that StoryCorps collects are unlike anything else you’ll hear on the radio. They’re essentially personal, emotional conversations between family members and close friends. But they also reveal what we all have in common.

To listen to more StoryCorps interviews, check out their archive . You can also listen to their podcast on SoundCloud.

And StoryCorps wants you to get involved! On November 23rd, celebrate the National Day of Listening by recording your own interview with someone special.
