Today’s Daily Create took me a bit of time:
The Nature SoundMap site offers a fantastic way to explore the sounds of nature around the world via a map. Pick 5 sounds from places in the world you have never been, download the audio from SoundCloud, and mix them together.
Sounded easy – I use Audacity and Soundcloud, so off I went. Easy enough to select sounds, so when I had 5 I liked I clicked to download from Soundcloud. Hmmm, only 2 of the 5 had download buttons, back to the drawing board. After lots of clicking and listening I found 5 that I liked that I could download. Next I imported the files into Audacity, sorted the lengths out and exported the results. Finally I uploaded to Soundcloud. So here you have it: A Blakiston’s Fish Owl dues, baby racoons twittering, a grey go-away bird, a guanaco and sunrise by a billabong. I like it 🙂
