Last month we introduced the Pop Up Archive Mashup Contest 2012. We’d like to very deeply and sincerely thank everyone for their wonderful submissions. Our judges laughed and cried and ultimately selected two winners for their skillful blends of archival audio. 

So congratulations to our winners Patricia Fung (a.k.a. ramble n’ roll) and Michael Saltsman (a.k.a. Pumpkin Patch). Be sure to check out their tracks below.

We’d also like to offer a bonus congratulations to Pumpkin Patch for going out on a limb and submitting this sublimely strange Popcorn Maker mashup. Enjoy.

SoundCloud Community Fellows | Here Be Monsters and DecodeDC | Andrea quits NPR

The 2012 SoundCloud Community Fellowship concluded a few weeks ago, but we’d still love to share this great episode by Jeff Emtman, whose Fellowship project, Here Be Monsters is all about the unknown.

In light of this, he interviewed former NPR journalist Andrea Seabrook, also a SoundCloud Fellow, whose podcast DecodeDC is dedicated to shaking up Washington and revealing the facts that are often hidden or “unknown” in public media.

We’re honored that both were part of this program and got to be in touch afterward. Enjoy and leave a comment about what you think.

Pop Up Archive is a 2012 SoundCloud Community Fellow.

We are not musicians or producers. We don’t normally make sound. We started our project, Pop Up Archive, because we recognize that public media is moving onto the web and that new content is created with greater ease by more people than ever before. So, what we do is hunt media down, wrangle it, and keep it tame and orderly so that people like you — podcasters, radiophiles, musicians and producers — can find it, reuse it, and keep it vital.

Do you have raw audio that’s sitting in your external HD storage or collecting dust in boxes? Can unused raw audio content be reused to inspire creativity? Pop Up Archive thinks so and wants to help.
