ABOUT FOUNDSOUNDS

FoundSounds is a space dedicated to finding, sharing and discovering sounds.

Geotagged for Collage

Sounds are recorded and geotagged. This allows users to zoom to any area in the world and listen to specific sounds, or collage them together to create an artificial sonic geography.

Go for a Sound Walk

Put in your earbuds and go for a walk. As you approach the location of a recorded sound, the sound becomes louder. Listen to the temporal collage of previously recorded sound and the sound happening right now.

Quick and Easy Recording

It’s fast and easy to open the app and record a sound.You can record sounds for your own private use or record them publicly and post with either a restricted copyright license or a free use license which allows others to find and use your sounds.
