    Dare 40 - Lost for words


    Hey guys and girls, ever felt lost for words?
    Well, you are in luck: klankbeeld has about 4000 words for you.
    http://www.freesound.org/people/klankbeeld/sounds/250989/
    http://freesound.org/people/klankbeeld/sounds/276451/
    There is a very good chance that the words you lost are in there! smile

    Seriously, though... Your challenge, should you decide to accept it, is to compose a sentence or two using words from those two uploaded sounds.
    You can even go crazy, and compose a little poem or story - See how far you can go!

    Upload your creation to Freesound and post here with a link to let everyone know.

    deadline - 5 Sep 11:00 GMT

    This is an interesting one. I might use TTS to produce a little story. I think I will need to add some connecting words in there though so it's actually readable.

    For anyone who wants a text based list of words to scan through, I have a CSV which goes up to entry ~3800 (but that's plenty if you ask me)

    You can find it HERE

    p.s. Alien - you double posted this thread by the way. Did you notice?


    I am the thing that goes bump in the night...

    Sounds like fun. I've already got an idea for a very goofy story, and I won't need any extra connecting words from other sources hehehe, though the narrator may sound a bit like tarzan. Can we use other sounds as sound effects?

    Dear Freesounders

    appologies for my sillence on this thread. The deadline is long gone.
    Just after coming back from holiday I have had to travel on work. More travel required later this month, so my time on Freesound will be very limited.

    I have spent some time while on hols cuting words from klankbeeld long files. I think I have spend 3-4h on it in total and I have managed to cut out the first 300 words from one of the files. Work will progress (slowly) and I will definetely produce something from those cut out words.
    However, considering current activity level at work and the need to travel... there is no telling when that will be. I will post here when it happens.

    Currently I have one pending music project (not Freesound) that I am working on. I will be dedicating all my free time to this until it is finished.
    I have no plans to launch a September dare. If anyone has a good idea and wants to post one, please go ahead.
    It is not clear yet at this time if I will be able to run a dare in Oct...

    I want to believe.
