Found Sounds: Rings a Bell
Found Sounds is a new SoundCloud community feature focusing on some of the most weird and wonderful sounds that can be found on SoundCloud. Count on new installments with some of our favorite sounds each Tuesday!
SoundClouder nnnnnnil (is that your real name?) uploaded the first of this week’s found sounds. There are plenty of relaxing field recording sounds on SoundCloud, but there’s something especially soothing about this temple wind chime recorded last month in the Yeonmi-Sa temple in Andong, Korea.
As one of the February entries in the always interesting 365 Days of Sound project, Josh G captured the ringing bells of a funeral procession in Vienna, Austria. Like many of the sounds in his 2011 “sound diary,” these bells are a little reminder of a sonic scene in that one moment in time. In the track description, Josh notes the “weird atmosphere” that his recorder couldn’t quite capture — maybe not, but a great sound nonetheless.

Ollie Hall, the man behind Binaural Diaries, uses a field recorder and a set of binaural microphones to record the world around him. This week’s found sound features the “Bells of Time” in Ueno Park, Tokyo, and comes from an incredible set of sounds he collected on his profile called, “Japan by Ear.”
