I was recently contacted by the good folks at Open Sound New Orleans. This is a website where people can post audio clips to a map of the city. They loaned me a sweet little audio recording device called the Samson Zoom H2 and told me to go crazy with it. So over the past little while I’ve recorded over a hundred audio clips. Much of it is probably uninteresting to anyone except me, but there are a few good bits here and there. I’ve only added one clip to the map so far, but I hope to sort through these files over the next few weeks and add a few more. In the meantime, I just wanted to applaud Heather and Jacob for a unique and innovative cultural documentation project. They are definitely visionaries after my own heart. Check out Open Sound New Orleans, give it a listen, and maybe you’ll even want to contribute yourself.

Thanks for posting this B. Our kids thought it was cool to listen to all kinds of different things all the way in New Orleans!
How do I get one of these? There is a plethora of activity around the Point. I’d love to get the departing ferry on there. Four times an hour, like an alarm clock, it goes “bonk.”
