Community fellow Ed introduces us to the most interesting person he found in Omaha in his latest post from his travels.

Want to know about the Arts in Omaha?  For last week’s city stories feature, I tracked down Ed, who helped start a place called Hot Shops - a huge studio space North of Downtown.  Ed’s been blowing glass for over 30 years and started this project 10 years ago.  Go see him (and the other artists) if you ever make it to Omaha.

I found some other sounds in Nebraska, including the locusts that seem to be ubiquitous (and loud), some sounds from Omaha’s zoo, and interviews with Nebraskans at a 9/11 concert.

Weekly Recap: 8/21 - 8/27

It’s Post-Irene Sunday here on the East Coast. I hope everyone here kept safe during the rather windy and rainy conditions. So here’s something to look forward to, the weekly recap! So this week was all about user submissions as I featured the two of the first submissions I have received. On Monday I featured Jeff’s sounds from Athens Square Park in Astoria. A rousing rendition of Cascada is always a great way to get your work week going. On Wednesday we went across the pond with Peter as he showed us the power and potential behind public art through an excerpt of the “Hopes and Fears” Project. I’ve enjoyed receiving these submissions and would like to remind all of you that you can always send me sounds, just check out the Participate page for more information! The more, the merrier. For this week, expect recordings to come a little later in the week than usual from me. I’m in Pennsylvania for the time being, and won’t be in the city until later this week. Until then enjoy the maps of Astoria and England below!

The power behind art is undeniable. When you’re in a museum there’s that specific painting that just makes you drop everything and just look. When you’re on the street there’s always that one piece of street art that makes you stop and think, even if its for 30 seconds. Art also has the power to heal and communicate a powerful story. Today’s recording is another user submission, Peter Snelling from the UK. Peter is a producer who’s mission is to give voices to those that usually go unheard. He does this through various art and creative projects, one of them being the “Hopes and Fear Project”. In the project teenagers talk about what their hopes and fears are striking some funny, powerful, and inspiring stories. At the end of the project the teenagers went on to create print art work and exhibited to their community at the Exeter Pheonix. Their stories were also told over the radio Phonic FM. The recording featured today is from a young girl Bea, who battled leukemia. Powerful story but one that should be heard. I would like to thank the users that have submitted material thus far in the project and would like to remind all of you, you can submit material as well. Just click on the Participate page to get all of the details!

First off, apologies on the lack of posts last week! Close to no internet access and prep for a job interview will do such a thing, but I’m back and with a couple of sounds for you. Today I’ll take you down to the quaint neighborhood of NoLita. The neighborhood is wedged right in between SoHo, Little Italy, and the Lower East Side and has a lot of great restaurants you can dine in. I used to live in this area my junior year of college and the food choices were awesome. One of my favorite restaurants was a pizzeria called L’asso. At this pizzeria there are new creations weekly and the best part? The seasonal craft beer they have on tap. Not only are they delicious but from local breweries. On the side of restaurant there is an awesome mural by Dima, entitled “The Ace” and this is where our sound recording today will take us.

The restaurant in on a street where, in addition to other delicious eats, there are also a bit of industrial spaces as well. In other words, it might be a bit of a loud recording so keep the volume at low.
