On our mission to unmute the web, we’re dedicated to helping you capture and share the sounds you create. Whether that’s original music, podcasts or voice memos, we exist to bring your sounds front and center and aim to make sound a bigger part of our lives.

We asked 10 sound experts, enthusiasts and friends of SoundCloud to talk to us about sound. We were amazed by the positive response we got from the people we asked and are thrilled to present to you the result:

Sound. By SoundCloud.

Remember a few weeks back, when Imogen Heap announced that she would write and produce her next album with the help of her fans?
791 sounds and 225 solos later, Imogen is happy to present the first song she’s written with contributions of some of her most loyal fans. For us here at SoundCloud HQ, it was a fantastic experience to watch her nightly video live streams during which she previewed the many sounds you’ve sent her.
So earlier this week, what started known as #heapsong1 turned into a song called Lifeline, which you can listen to below:

Imogen Heap has been a longtime SoundClouder and always on the forefront when it comes to finding new ways to engage and connect with her fans. Recently she answered some of the questions her fans recorded for her: http://ask.imogenheap.com
Now for her new album, she came up with another very interesting idea you should not miss. Let’s hear it in her own words:

My fourth solo album begins here, with you on the 14th March. You are the spark of inspiration. #heapsong1 is the working title of the first song from my new album. The album will be completed in roughly 3 years, with a new song released every 3 months as soon as it’s completed.

Imogen plans to put the songs out as soon as they are ready and keep them relevant to the time they are created. Then, as Imogen still wants to have another physical album to put on her shelf next to Ellipse, she’ll release the album for those who’d like to hold it.
And you can contribute in the making of the first track of the new album, that is pretty cool. Head over here to learn about how you can participate and tune in tonight at 6pm GMT for a live chat with Imogen herself.
Here’s the link to the PDF with all details and timeline for the new creation of the new record.
