YARMONICS Sound Library submissions:

We are creating an open source sound archive of sounds collected from in and around Great Yarmouth.

The sounds that are collected will become part of an open source archive, readily available for public use and observation, stored on the Freesound platform. The archive is an ongoing project that aims to capture a rich and varied sonic portrayal of the town.

All sounds sent to us up until midday on September 22nd will be given to Luke Sanger and Nik Colk Void to be used in their improvised performances at YARMONICS ELECTRONIC to close the festival.

After the festival a selection of sounds will be edited into packages that can be freely downloaded and used for remix and composition purposes.
