Hi Bruce, Once you get these sounds, it would be nice if you could make it available via the ICAD web site. (Provided of course the submitters allow you to do that). I remember a few years ago researchers at ATR, Nara, Japan had put together a 5 DVD collection of sounds, which however had to be obtained directly from them. Googling, I find the following article on the database: Ramani -----Original Message----- From: icad-bounces@xxxxxxxx [mailto:icad-bounces@xxxxxxxx On Behalf Of Bruce Walker Sent: Thursday, March 20, 2008 1:15 PM To: AUDITORY Research in Auditory Perception; icad@xxxxxxxx Subject: [Icad] Pointers to snoring sounds? Auditory Community, I am looking for any pointers to collections or archives of real- world audio or video clips of snoring. 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! --Bruce ============================ Ramani Duraiswami Associate Professor, Computer Science/UMIACS/ECE/AMSC Director, Perceptual Interfaces and Reality Lab.
