    Call for Field Recordings


    Hey freesounders,

    I just read about this call for field-recordings for a pretty awesome sounding project. They are looking for field recordings of nature that will be linked to QR codes in metropolitan environments; I don't have many "natural" recrordings myself but I've heard some great ones from fellow feesounders! The deadline is in just a couple days, below is the official call with an email address contact for questions and submissions:


    Peace Hear/Here
    Call for field recordings
    Seeking high quality field recordings of natural environments for the Peace Hear project. Peace Hear will utilize the Quick Response (QR) code system to allow transitory access to field recordings of natural environments through mobile devices. Stickers with a QR code on it, along with the words Peace Hear, will be strategically placed in congested, noisy, places such as subways, street corners, bus stops, etc. When a mobile phone scans the QR code, a field recording of a natural environment will be streamed to the phone, creating an aural portal to a contrasting sensory experience. Credits for the recordings will be listed on the webpage hosting the recordings. Send files or downloadable links to peacehear.qr@gmail.com, along with credit information, including the location where the field recording was sourced, recordists name and the date of the recording.

    Deadline: February 15, 2012
    peacehear.qr@gmail.com

    In general I agree @toiletrolltube, which is why I don't have any "nature" field recordings of my own to submit.

    I think the larger picture of the project, far from disparaging city sounds, is bringing to life sounds from out-there places and "all corners of the world" that few people get a chance to visit. So that during the time of this festival in Brussels the whole city can experience sounds of "the other" through the QR codes: a city-wide, voluntary, fantasy-soundscape installation.
