On 5th October as part of SoundCloud Global Meetup Day @ Strongroom Studios Benji Boko recorded a track in one day taking sounds from SoundClouders across the world. Well it’s time to take a listen!
Benji also sent over a personal note of thanks you can read in the track description, plus we have a behind the scenes look at the whole day too! -
Hear the original submissions and thank you to all the community who got involved!
If you take a stroll from Hackescher Markt to Rosenthaler Platz, please note that you’re passing a world class company. The Soundcloud office lies just across the basketball field where their employees enjoy a game or two during summer.
Last friday the world renowned audio platform with the slogan “Everyone has sounds to share. Now you can share yours.” opened its doors to the Friday’s at Six radioshow, F@6, a weekly radio show about startups in Berlin. Broadcasting live from the Soundcloud conference room four senior employees talked about the product, strategy and company culture.
Unfortunately CEO Alex Ljung and CTO Eric Wahlforss could not join us as they had other engagements. Eric visited a webconference in Rumenia and Alex took the stage at Monaco Media Forum just after Prince Albert.
At the show Marketing Director Thom Cummings said that Soundcloud has reached an impressive 8 million users. With the launch of the HTML5-player, Android App and Ipad App it took Soundcloud only 43 days to add one million new users. Talking about Hockey Stick Growth!
Head of Community Management David Noël who now leads a team of seven people explained what drives him to make the user experience better. Really interesting stuff for all community managers out there!
Audio Content Manager Ben Fawkes told us about his travels around the world where he raises awareness of Soundcloud’s pivot from a music-centric plattform to a general audio platform.
Also at the show was Soundcloud newbie Marcus Schaefer (screen designer). After his first two weeks with the company he says that leaving New York for Berlin was the right thing to do.
So please enjoy the full broadcast with handpicked music (“Soundclouds of the day”) from the Soundcloud community team. Remember that audio gives you the opportunity to listen while you get things done.
You will problably never come closer to what really happens inside the Soundcloud Berlin office.
