Some time ago, we talked about the Tim Prebble’s idea of make a sound design library with 100 different recordists around the world. That initial project was called “The Doors”. The goal was to group a total of 1000 different doors sounds (10 recordings for each participant) and release it as a HISS and a ROAR library.
The Doors deadline has come and the project was a total success, so Tim is now ready for another CrowdSourced library, using the same concept, but this time with Dogs recordings. Tim’s goal is to group 200 recordists and 1000 different dogs recordings (5 dogs for each person).
Seeing as how THE DOORS is hopefully going to finally kill the overuse of cliche doors, maybe we can also kill the over use of ‘DOG NEXT DOOR’ or at least provide some seriously good alternatives! But the world of dogs is vast & complex – some of the weirdest vocalisations I have ever heard were from a very small dog! So please comment on this post if you wish to be a contributor. As with the 1,000 doors aim (which we will easily meet) lets aim for 1,000 dogs so if each person records 5 dogs then we have a recordist limit of 200 contributors.
