SoundTransit.nl is an online, collaborative soundscape project dedicated to field recording and phonography. On this site, you can BOOK a sonic transit through a wide range of different locations recorded from around the world, or you can SEARCH the database for specific sounds by keyword, artist, country or location. If you are a phonographer, you can also contribute your recordings for others to enjoy. The Creative Commons Attribution license encourages the sharing and reuse of all sounds on this website.The basis of SoundTransit.nl lies in the international Phonography community.
Phonography is the art of recording sounds from the environment around us, with an emphasis on the unintentional sounds which often go unnoticed in our daily lives. The phonographers who collect and share their work here have interests ranging from recordings of natural or urban environments to improvised situations and soundwalks to the resonance of solid objects or the Earth’s atmosphere.
