Since, July 28, 2008 I have been presenting at least "One Sound Every Day" on AudioCookbook.org. I founded the site around the idea of creating a non-profit resource for experimental sound design and music. Since then a vibrant community has developed there. Official contributors hail from Minnesota, New York and London while site visitors have come from a total of ninety-eight countries.
The site was reviewed by Peter Kirn's on, CreateDigitalMusic.com, and a sample pool is hosted with the popular remixing community, ccMixter.com. Remixes using the audio presented have started to appear including a beautiful rework of Kristin Hersch's piece, "Mississippi Kite". Finally, Freesound.org is hosting the first "sample pack" of sounds from AudioCookbook.org from August, 2008.
Sound Design Recipes, in Blog Form
Sound design secrets have traditionally been closely-guarded secret sauce. But in the age of the Web, the opposite is happening: people can actually enjoy sharing what they’re doing, just as passionate cooks chat about recipes on food blogs. Case in point: reader John Keston writes to tell us about AudioCookbook.org, on which he’s blogging a new sound each day. Not only is this a nice way to talk about techniques with fellow enthusiasts, but it’s a great example of how you can use blogging to encourage you to get things accomplished, rather than just distracting you. It’s Creative Commons, so perhaps someday we’ll have a massive, open source sourcebook of music techniques from various writers.
