I've been enjoying Social Sound Design for many months now and find it to be an incredible resource for picking creative brains all over the world. What I haven't seen much of, however, is requests for sounds / offers of trades in return. Given the global nature of the Users here I think this is a no-brainer since many of you have access to ambiences and objects that the rest of us do not. Thus, my post -
I'm currently working on a project that has a rickety windmill-type contraption and am looking for alternate sounds to what I have already designed. To paint a mental picture, think:
- Very old, very large and barely holding together. But has to still be working and have a strong rhythmic motion to it.
Some recordings I think could work would be of:
- Grain mills / other types of mills
- Water wheels
- Spinning wheels
- Ratchety factory machines
- Antique machines not requiring a motor
I'm curious to see what you all have in your personal libraries, and if you'd be willing to share or trade? If so, what's the best way to exchange files? Vimeo, ftp or something else? Chime in, people -- let's get to tradin'!
