Entry 3: Center For Global Soundscapes

The ‘Centre for Global Soundscapes‘ is an organization who’s mandate is to document, globally, the worlds vast and ever-changing sonic environments. As part of their mission, they strive to document vanishing or endangered soundscapes.

Though this project may not have a direct link to Indigenous culture and technology, it inadvertently politicizes sound. That is, by documenting the effects that western economic policy has both sonically and environmentally on the world, the project captures the infiltrating sonic penetration of our modern structures.

It is possible to peruse the 1000’s of recordings from archived material. The site also provides a link to user generated recordings that subscribers to the record the earth project have created.
