Edward Found Sounds: Laugh out Loud

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!

One of the most emotive sounds there is, is a child’s laughter. I don’t think there’s anything else that quite conveys a bigger sense of joy and happiness than this sound. To be amused by the smallest thing and show such great emotion from it is one of the most precious things from being a child.

But the sound of laughter doesn’t always mean happiness, these sounds can stray into insanity and delirium. Laughter can be used to characterize evil villains, the deluded and the power mad. The sound of laughter may creep you out, it may put you off balance, it may even scare you….

The sound of laugher is slowly becoming silenced in the world, every day we type “LOL” and “HAHA”, but how many times do we actually make these sounds when we do this. It is the high pitched screams and yelps of joy that make laughter so contagious and uncontrollable in times of happiness.

Laughter can be contagious, so today we hope you catch it because as Charlie Chaplin once said, “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”. 

That’s all for this week’s Found Sounds! Tune in next week for more crazy sounds from the ‘Cloud.

    Hmm, none of these found sounds work in Firefox. I just get a message that says “We don’t currently support your browser, but we’re working on it.” I don’t have Flash installed. Will SoundCould play Ogg Vorbis in Firefox in the mysterious future?
