SoundCloud Voices is a new weekly Community feature focusing on new spoken word creators found on SoundCloud. It might be a podcast, radio show, audio book, interview, audio messages, a poem, anything! Keep an eye out every Thursday for a new post.
Tis Thursday and time for another SoundCloud Voices post - continuing with Edinburgh Fringe Festival peeps using SoundCloud. This week we have some fantastic newcomers all contributing to our Sounds of Fringe map and recording with the our iPhone app.
First up is BBC Radio One DJs Scott Mills and Nick Grimshaw. They are up at Fringe performing their “Fun and Filth” cabaret show. They’ve been using the SoundCloud iPhone app to record some behind the scene messages, reports, interviews and general banter. All recordings are being posted on their blog too, so why not take a listen!?
Time Out Magazine London edition are also up in Edinburgh running around the hundreds of shows. The main problem they were having was there were too many shows to write up - so some of them have been turned into audio reviews. Take a listen to the latest review by Ben Walters below. You can also see all of the audio reviews and the map on the Time Out site. All recordings are also being added to the Sounds of Fringe map!
And finally a new venue signing up to be involved in Sounds of Fringe is Dance Base, the National Centre for Dance. Using the iPhone app to record, members of shows at Dance Base have been recording little promo messages. Some of them are really imaginative too! Take a listen to the below message where Caroline Simon gives a very visual description of her show! Really cool stuff!
Keep an eye out next week for more spoken word users from Fringe Festival!
