The BBC has launched a great project called ‘Save Our Sounds’, dedicated to capturing and preserving sounds from all over the world in one big map of sound. Here’s the concept:
The eye is attracted by change, the new and the flashy. Our ears, by contrast, are seduced by the familiar. Yet, all the time, the sound of the world is changing. Precious sounds are dying while new ones enter our lives. So here at the BBC we want to build a sound map of the world – and save endangered sounds from extinction. And who better to help than avid audio consumers like you?
