Sound Mapping / Live Sound Online

Open Sound New Orleans - Yet another ear-opener in the recent surge of online soundmaps, and by gorey, this one might just be my favorite of them all! Could be due to a bit more personal connection to the city in question (visits, friends who've lived there), could be the quality of the sounds presented, or could be just that N'orleans is one of the more interesting urban communities out there. [WEBSITE]

London Sound Survey - Perhaps the most ambitious and comprehensive approach to sound mapping I've yet to see, this site has several faces: A grid map of London, from which you can both graphically see the nature of the soundscape in different parts of the city, and click to hear all sounds recorded in each grid cell. Sounds are separately collected into "Sound Actions," grouped by category, such as economic, or political, or social, or religious sounds; in each category, you can peruse an annotated list, and click to play what interests you. A section of "Historical" sounds consists of excerpts of books and diaries from the 11th century on, again divided into useful categories (sounds of street and town, communal living, river traffic, plague/war/disaster). A blog features posts on topics such as the decline of whistling, and philosophical subway ("tube") announcements. An all-around wonderful site! [WEBSITE]

Listen to Africa - Part of an ongoing travel blog project by a couple bicycling through Africa. Beginning in May 2009 in Morocco, they are working their way down into West Africa, adding recordings at a steady but not too-frenetic pace. A site well worth book marking and returning to every couple of weeks or month. [WEBSITE]

Listening to the Deep Ocean Environment (LIDO) - European network of ocean observatories, with audio available for online listening. [WEBSITE]

The Smalls Street Sounds - Their goal is to inspire more compelling use of sound in film-making; to this end, they're sponsoring a film competition using the sounds collected on their site. [WEBSITE]

Cinco Cidades Soundmap - Unique project from Portugal, featuring a wide variety of sounds recorded in five cities; you can listen to one at a time, or create your own mix of up to five sound loops at a time. [WEBSITE]

BBC Save Our Sounds - This BBC soundmapping project launched in June 2009, and is rapidly gathering sound files from around the world. In addition to the sound map, the main site features radio features from the concurrent series on BBC radio and a Desperately Seeking Sounds feature, in which visitors ask the global recording community to help them find sounds that they miss from their past or need for a current project. Despite the big sponsor, this site’s sounds load more sluggishly than many other grassroots soundmaps out there, but there are some nice clips being sent in. [WEBSITE]

Radio Aporee - This site is beautiful, if a bit opaque to navigate. Clicking into the site will land you smack-dab into a fairly close up view of a city streetscape, with a few red dots denoting sound files uploaded from particular locations. Zoom out and you’ll see this neighborhood shrink down, while the red dots proliferate across the country, continent, and planet. Click on any dot to listen in. One of the cooler features is soundwalks, in which the “red dot sound files” fade out and in as you wander down the street! [WEBSITE]

Montreal Sound Map - Another new community sound-mapping project, fueled by good ol' Google Maps, this from Canada's old city of Montreal. [WEBSITE]

Cologne Sound Map - Local sound mapping project on a Google Earth interface. [WEBSITE]

Macaulay Library Animal Sound Visualizer - A nifty QuickTime plug in allows visitors to explore the world of animal sound in stunning new ways. While listening to an animal call or song (and often watching an accompanying video), you can watch in real time as a curser moves across the spectrogram showing the structure of the sounds. You can even slow down or speed up the playback from .25x to 8x! From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, home of one of the most comprehensive collections of bioacoustics recordings. [WEBSITE] - New search engine that specializes in finding sound files in several different formats, by word or "sounds like"; search results are imperfect (apparently not recognizing quotation marks and so returning results for any word in a multi-word search, such as "beaked whale"), but it's a start. The company also offers a Windows-only program to organize the sounds you collect. [GO THERE]

Ocean Conservation Research Sound Library - A great set of ocean sound samples, in three categories: Fish, Mammals, Human, with songrams to better see the "shape" of the sound. [WEBSITE]

Fish Sounds of New England - A great collection of "soniferous fishes" recorded in both ocean and freshwater habitats in New England. Many of the sounds have yet to be linked to their species of origin, as acoustic studies of fish is still a very new field. Follow links from this page to learn more about the research behind them. [WEBSITE]

Singing Sand Dunes - Two sites that focus on the oft-noticed sounds of sand in motion, whether by wind or footsteps. The first [WEBSITE] is more academic in nature, and the second [WEBSITE] more artistic, but both feature nice sounds.

NPS Soundscape Studies in Yellowstone - A page on the Yosemite website describing the work they did over the past two summers to assess the soundscapes in the park. And that’s not all! There’s also a link to a half-hour MP3 file/podcast featuring the NPS Natural Sounds Program’s lead scientist, Kurt Fristrup, talking about his studies of the effect of noise on predator-prey relationships (a line of research that I tell people about more often than nearly any other), as well as noise effects on animal communications and human physiology. The audio feature also addresses the acoustic health of Yosemite as well as some interesting discoveries made possible through recordings made in the wilderness. [WEBSITE] [MP3 INTERVIEW] - Features a map with locations of several research sites offering live and archived sound and video from Puget Sound and BC.

Archaeoacoustics Sites - Archaeoacoustics is the study of the acoustic properties in and around archaeological sites, including neolithic stone circles (which often exhibit sound focusing), underground chambers (where there are often amplification or attenuation effects), and rock art sites (where echoes may have evoked spirits). Example: Easter Aquorthies: The project sought to confirm the presence of a distinctive echo that seemed to originate from the recumbent stone. To test this a loudspeaker was positioned near to the recumbent block and set to emit 'pink noise' whilst a series of recordings were taken across the interior of the circle. The arrangement of stones act rather like a stage in a theatre. In addition to providing an impressive visual backdrop to activities within the circle, these megaliths reflect and enhance sound. Sounds could also be heard echoing between other stones, creating a peculiar effect which could easily be generated by clapping, using the voice or by simple musical instruments. Interestingly, people outside the circle would not have been able to hear these sound effects. Aaron Watson Neolithic UK site studies [WEBSITE] [ANOTHER WATSON SITE] Steven J.
