Sounds and Music used in the creation of this Podcast are from:
Freesound was started in 2005 in the Music Technology Group of Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain. Currently it is being maintained and developed by the Freesound team, which is composed of current and former researchers and students of the research group. Freesound is possible thanks to the support of Universitat Pompeu Fabra, who provides the needed hardware infrastructure to handle the site.
Freesound aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, etc all released under Creative Commons licenses that allow their reuse. Freesound provides new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to:
- browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a "sounds-like" type of browsing
- upload and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license
- interact with fellow sound-artists!
