    Noise Reduction: A Multi-Sited Field Study


    this is Gabriele de Seta - I dabble in field recordings and I have been commissioned a work for an extemporaneous exhibition that will be set up by an Italian art center.

    Instead of recording something myself, this time I decided to put together a work consisting in fragments of field recordings stitched together, with the aim of capturing the sound of quarantines & lockdowns around the world. More than a compilation, this will be a collage with no documentary or representational pretenses, and more of an opportunity to mash together recordings and offer a moment of togetherness to listeners.

    I'm sure many of you have noticed how sound fields around you have changed, with noises or silences being foregrounded or shifted by the pandemic. If you want to help me out, I'd love to include anything you might want to submit. Some guidelines:

    - 1 to 5 minutes
    - any audio format
    - any recording device & medium
    - no audio quality requirement, no editing / mastering needed
    - before 4/4/2020

    UPLOAD HERE, filename = credit:

    I'll credit all participants by the name they submit in the filename. Unfortunately there's no remuneration involved, but if this works out I'll share details.

    I hope this is of interest & doesn't go against Freesound policies. I've been suggested to post here on Twitter...

    Hi Gabriele,

    This is very nice initiative and you'll find some sounds like these in Freesound already.
    I just moved this thread to "Sample requests" forum as it feels more appropriate.

    Also consider the option of asking people permission to also upload to Freesound or to do it themselves smile If you have all sounds here then you can create a sound to embed in one-click smile
