Phonography & field recording streams

Hello all,

I’m starting a simple stream featuring unedited field recordings and I’m seeking submissions.

No restrictions on length or content. I’d like lossless recordings ideally paired with a photo of the space where the recording was made, but that’s not a hard requirement.

This will stream on http://phonography.radio.af in a shuffled playlist – displaying appropriate metadata and a photo when available.

The stream is up now just looping one recording I made in college: http://phonography.radio.af/stream/

DM me or contact me at erik@hecanjog.com or reply to this thread or whatever works!

Thank you!

Erik

Edit: I changed the topic so we can post other streams we’ve found as well!

Sounds great! I’ll sort through my field recordings and will drop you a line :slight_smile:

I set up the “now playing” functionality this morning – but it’ll get more interesting once there is more than one item in the playlist! :slight_smile:

http://phonography.radio.af/

Still need to finish the player styles and add support for image metadata on tracks, as well as an optional HTML blob with info and links about the currently playing recording.

Otherwise I plan to keep this pretty simple! Maybe also a page or section which just lists all the current contributors would be good too?

love this idea! I’ve been making a number of field recordings this year, will sort through and send some along for your consideration. :slight_smile:

Added some more great submissions to the channel but we still really need lots more if you’d like to contribute!

Fixed up the player and website a bit and started tweeting the recordings as they play here as well: https://twitter.com/AleatoricForest

Awesome, thanks!! These will be up in the stream probably before the weekend.

Here’s a live stream of a hydrophone field recording that my brother just launched today: https://brackish.co.uk/

Wanted to share as the subjects are kind of close.

It’s a pretty musical place to listen to. Absolute heaviosity when the ferry comes in! Amazing power drones.

"A single hydrophone placed within a fishing creel (functioning both as protective enclosure and microphone shock mount) records the daily activity of a sea loch adjacent to the port of Lochmaddy on the island of North Uist.

The microphone is strategically located behind the small island of Eilean Casaig at a confluence of edge habitats between the industrial port, connecting marine traffic to the Minch, and the tidal sea lochs which extend into uninhabited natural lands. Among the tidal ebb and flow of currents anthropogenic sounds of seaweed harvesting, ferry traffic, and fishing boats compete with natural sounds of the marine habitat of the bay."

Wow! This is so so cool, thanks for sharing it.

I’ve been looking for other phonography streams to collect ideas for where to take this one, and just find stuff to listen to because I like to listen. :slight_smile: It’s really nice to open these up all at once. Here’s some more I found recently:

http://radio.aporee.org/

A responsive radio stream using the huge catalog of field recordings collected for the aporee sound map project – responsive in that it does stuff like try to find local recordings when listeners tune in, pushes new uploads to the top of the queue and other things.

http://wetlandproject.com/140dev/display/ra-feat.php

A live feed (I think it’s live?) of a marsh in Saturna Island, British Columbia – part of the Wetland Project

http://locusonus.org/soundmap/

The Locus Sonus soundmap project which has a map of a bunch of live mics – streams of locations around the world right now.
