It would be great if you would submit sounds to the Soundcities project, wherever you are based in the world. Soundcities now has thousands of sounds from hundreds of contributors including field recordists, musicians, and artists across the globe. Sounds have been submitted from all parts of the world from central London to Montevideo. The sounds you submit take any form, streets sounds, talking to people, the sounds of industry, ambient sounds and bird sounds. Contributions can be made from the submit page automatically. This project is not funded and I am grateful to everyone who has taken their time to submit sounds from schools to university projects and individuals. Soundcities is an ongoing work, so there’s no deadline for submissions. If you’d like to use any of the sounds for any purpose, please get in touch.
