Sounds of quarantine: open calls

Open calls for field recordists and sound designers. Cities and Memory - Stay Home Sounds : sounds from the global Covid-19 lockdown With countless communities and countries around the world entering lockdown and social distancing to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, the world is at present a very different place.

We know that – along with sounds – everyone has their own story to tell.

We’re inviting anyone around the world to send us a sound recording from wherever YOU are, and tell us a little about how things are wherever you live.

Cities and Memory - #StayHomeSounds

Alastair Sirkett - Ambient Isolation : Ambient Recordings From the Lockdown Ideally everyone would record at a few times throughout the day (early morning, midday, early evening and late night), to capturewhat they feel is the biggest sonic change they've noticed in their environment. [...] If you're in a very rural location and you feel there hasbeen no sonic change, then that's great too, please still record so we can document that.We currently have everything from 5 minutes of night time silence, through to multiple sirens and clapping crowds.
