On October 6 an exhibition featuring sound recordings and oral history will be opening at the British Library- “Listen: 140 Years of Recorded Sound”
The British Library has archived over 6 million sounds from regional accents to music to waterfalls: http://sounds.bl.uk
I love the idea of a library of sounds.
And it made me think of what I would archive in my own library of sounds.
- the voices of my loved ones
- the hum of many bees buzzing
- the turning of book pages
- the water sprinkler
- fire crackling
These are just some that come to mind at the moment.
What sounds would you include in your library?
