Call for Submissions!
I want to give one more special thanks to Pavel for his contribution to yesterday’s post. If you haven’t had a listen to it yet, you can find his recording here. This was the first ever community submission for Seoul Sounds, but hopefully it won’t be the last. As I’ve been doing this blog basically alone for the past three years, with the occasional help of my wife or another friend, I’ve realized that there are far too many sounds for one set of ears and one microphone to ever capture. What was once a mission to find a unique interpretation of normal everyday life has began to sound more and more like, well, “normal life” the longer I’ve stayed. I’m still finding great sounds, but it’s just not as easy as it once seemed to be.
That’s where I hope you can come in. To go off what we just started, I’m challenging you, the reader, to help me collect sounds. You don’t need any special abilities or background to do it. All you really need is a set of ears, a way to record (not too difficult in the days of smart phones), and an imagination.
Hopefully, we’ll be able to collect a whole new group of sounds for this page and be able to extend our sound map well beyond what I’m capable of doing myself. Besides, as I will be leaving Korea in the next month (official announcement coming soon), it would be great to keep this thing going after I’ve left. And that won’t be possible without your help!
Anyone and everyone is invited to join, and I’ve even created a “Community Submissions” section in the top menu bar to help navigate to those sounds that were provided by our readers. Feel free to email through the “contact me” link on the bottom right side of the page with questions or to send your recordings. Don’t worry about editing them or anything like that, as I can do that easily before posting anything online.
Thanks for your help! I look forward to hearing what you can come up with.
And, as always, thanks for listening!
