who's rolling on this? Wanna trade? :)


looks like someone in portland got a bunch of good stuff: [soundcloud]organic-city-sounds/portland-portrait-occupied[/soundcloud]

There is an occupy Dallas movement, but its not anywhere near the scale of what's happening in NY. I'm going to see it this weekend and try to get some good stuff though.

you guys that are heading to NY, don't forget to dive into the protests and record some chants! I have a feeling there will be a fair amount of demonstration media being developed in the coming months that will need good sounds. ;)

edit 2:

I went out yesterday and got a mountain of good stuff. fully 45 minutes of chants and cheers.

here's a taste and a blog post.

I would totally be up for some sound trades too with anyone capturing this – Stavrosound Oct 5 '11 at 21:59
Awesome recordings! – Haydn Payne Oct 23 '11 at 1:36

I'm hoping they're still there when I go up to AES in two weeks. Hoping for an awesome AES SSD meetup + crowd recording excursion. ;)

Trying to get to Occupy Philly, might be able to get some recordings if I can carry my gear on the bus.

Was planning to get there all week, but life got in the way. If it's still active next week I'll do my best to get over there and get some stuff.

I got out to Occupy Times Square and grabbed some stuff. Here's a link to one of the better recordings, all of which come from my little Zoom H4N.

I'm hoping to get them cut and labeled next week. Just give me a shout if you want them.
