We are putting together a Google Earth Web sound map for UK National Parks.
We are a group of researchers, passionate about listening and about how we, as human beings, relate to the sounds around us in our daily lives.
Another interesting audio project. Reminds me of the UK SoundMap from a few years ago. The map itself seems to be lost:( I blogged about that UK Sound Map and joined in with a few boos.
I loved the way the UK Sound Map project allowed anyone to join in by recording an Audioboo and tagging it.
The National Parks Sound Map is a bit more manual, you upload a sound and fill in a form. I just added one to see how it works.
Locus Sonus Stream Project offers a worldwide network of "open mikes" that permanently stream local soundscapes to a dedicated server. The resulting live audio is used in a large variety of artistic projects. The microphones are installed and maintained by volunteer participants.
the use if “umm” conversationally as a filler, to keep the flow going to signal you have not completed the thought your brain is sending to your mouth
Thanks for this.
One thing I liked when I did Radio Edutalk was by doing the show live I felt no pressure to edit the archives, beyond a bit of levelling and trimming my technical problems at the start of a nicecast broadcast.
One of the values, to me, of listening to a podcast is the extra information, often emotional, that is carried by the voice. This research linked might support that premiss.
As podcasting gets a lot more professional, one of the downsides might be the loss of the unedited voice.
This is not about the pros and cons of Teams. This is not about whether it is better than Slack, Zoom, Google Meet, Rocket.Chat or Jitsi. It is about a single feature that is so widely used in Zoom that I did not even think a serious competitor can lack the function – sharing your system audio with your colleagues and audience while presenting something on your screen.
The use case for that is pretty easily outlined: Prerecorded videos, reruns of an earlier session, or just some basic background music – all of that exceeds the basic capabilities of Microsoft Teams in its current iteration.
As I listen to Nigel Robertson (@easegill) spinning the tunes from New Zealand while I type these works, I am reminded of how much I love ds106radio—the little radio station Grant Potter prop…
When Nicecast went away I moved to Audio Hijack for the #ds106radio inspired Radio Edutalk.
It took a while to get my head round it but: https://johnjohnston.info/blog/audio-hijack/

As far as I remember I took only the right channel to my headphones to avoid hearing myself.
iOS app that I think should work with DS106 radio and is free,
