Found Sounds: Fat Tuesday
Found Sounds is a 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!
You may refer to today as Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday or even just Pancake day. On this day we feast before we fast, so let’s hear some of those sounds of gluttony!
First step is to scour the cupboard for your ingredients, flour, eggs and milk. Once you’ve found them, put them in a bowl and whisk them all up in to your pancake batter. MollyDoraBianca shares with us the sounds of whisking her pancake batter, it sounds like she is running one the most calmest, jolly kitchens there is!
The most recognizable sound of pancakes in the kitchen is the frying, and the flipping. As you pour your ingredients in to the sizzling hot pan, you’ll begin to hear the crackle and pops of the batter as your pancake begins to cook.
Next step, the flip! This is where everything could go wrong, you await the thud of the pancake falling back through the air and returning to the pan, or maybe you’ll be unlucky and hear a whack as the pancake hit’s the ceiling and falls down to the floor. Here’s the sounds of a pretty hefty flip:
I hope wherever you are today you find this Tuesday to be a great excuse to fry up a pancake or two, BBC Radio4 and Radio4 Ext kindly left us a few tips this morning on how to make the perfect pancake.
That’s all for this week’s Found Sounds! Tune in next week for more crazy sounds from the ‘Cloud.
