Sounds from the BBC Planet Earth Sound Effects Listening Party
Pro Sound Effects hosted the first BBC Planet Earth Sound Effects Listening Party this past week (July 2010) in NYC. The purpose was to gather together people from diverse backgrounds, listen to animal sounds from around the world, and via an Interactive Brain Panel, BrainBarnStorm ideas relating to interactive applications, installations, artistic and business application of this Massive archive.
We invited a select group of those in technology, music, art, fashion, web programming, design, engineering, martial arts and figure skating to storm the barn with the brains and come up with some cool ideas. The discussion portion of the event was informal, but creative and exciting ideas were nonetheless thrown out including:
- Creating a horror sound design library with all animal sound effects as your sonic palette (thanks, Arya)
- Producing webisodes for children where they listen to animal sounds from around the world and learn about their habitats (Valiance!)
- Pygmee Chimpanzee Fart ringtones (unanimous)
