Re: [Icad] Pointers to snoring sounds?
I don't know if you mean the World Soundscape Project, but in case you
didn't - it was an initiative in the 70s led by R.M. Schafer and Barry
Truax...Barry still hosts the huge library of recordings of contextual,
environmental sounds at SFU - a large part of it is digitized and
available royalty-free, as well as indexed (so you can find specific
instances of sound). If you are interested, I can probably help make the
contact with Barry, of you could approach him directly at truax@xxxxxx
Hope this helps - your project sounds interesting!

I am looking for any pointers to collections or archives of real- world

In fact, I will also be looking for all kinds of daily life sounds,
ranging from birds chirping to ambulances to dishwashers.
The sounds or video need to be good quality, real-world, and royalty-
free. I already have collections of sound effects and foley sounds; for
this project I will need more "real-world" audio, and more variety. I
am particularly interested in ecological audio, where the snoring,
dishwasher, vacuum cleaner, fire engine, etc., is recorded in its
natural acoustic environment, complete with competing environmental
sounds. For example, snoring recorded in a bedroom at night, or a fire
engine siren recorded live on the street, with other traffic noise,
jackhammers, and so on.
I recall a project a few years ago to capture sounds of the world...any
pointers/updates on that?
Any help would be most appreciated!
