Welcome to SoundTransit.
You are now in the “Search” section.

SoundTransit is a collaborative, online community dedicated to field recording and phonography.

In the “Book” section of this site, you can plan a sonic journey through various locations recorded around the world.

In the “Search” section, you can search the database for specific sounds by member artists from many different places.
If you are a phonographer, you can also contribute your recordings for others to enjoy.

The Creative Commons Attribution license encourages the sharing and reuse of all sounds on this website.

Enjoy SoundTransit!



After a 10 month hiatus, the Soundtransit project is back thanks to the generous hosting support of Turbulence.org. Huge thanks go out to Helen Thorington and Jesse Gilbert for their kindness and patience.

We still need your help raising EUR 800 to pay our previous hosting costs, however!

If you have found our collection of over 2000 recordings from 471 artists around the world interesting, and especially if you have used sounds from the project in your own work, please consider clicking the DONATE button on the left side of the page.
