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