I’m a little old-fashioned/rustic but I thought I’d join in on the fun!
Hey folks, apologies in advance if this is a quick fix… I just purchased the Leaflet app on my iPhone 4 and can’t seem to get past the login page. I enter my username and API key but have no “Submit” /”Login” button of any kind?
Anyone else seen this issue? Any ideas?
I need the communities help on the next episode of my podcast Sounds Like An Earful. The episode is all about consonance vs. dissonance. It will be structured like a debate, some guests arguing that music needs MORE dissonance, others stating that it needs less.
If anyone here is interested, I would really love it if you could sit back, think of a good argument for, or against dissonance; and then record yourself on your computer/phone/whatever you use. Here are a few ideas to start you thinking, but feel free to say whatever you want…..
Should art entrance us with a romanticized view the world, or violently shake us awake from our everyday lives?
What is and isn’t ‘pleasing’ (aka consonant) is very subjective and has changed over time… Is there actually an objective consonance or is it only a fabricated limitation?
Does embracing dissonance when creating music basically mean, “Who cares, I can do whatever I want and its good no matter what anyone says!” ?
I’d like to get this episode completed this week, so the deadline for submissions will be Wednesday, November 2nd. Email me your recordings (wav or mp3) at firstname.lastname@example.org ! Pass it along to friends too, the more the merrier!
Thanks a lot everybody, Christopher Postill
Sounds like a really fun thing to be involved in. How can one participate?
Thanks guys! The participate page on the shows website describes which guest spots I still need for upcoming episodes…. However, aside from episodes I would also like to produce extra bonus 5-10 minute segments for listeners as well… If you have any good sound-related story, or a particular piece of your own music with a story behind it, really anything that can open up listeners’ ears and make them think a little…. Email me using the form on the website and let me know what you’d like to pitch for the show!
Maybe we could even collaborate on a segment too… I’d love that!
I’ve recently begun producing a podcast that is focused around sound and music. It is titled Sounds Like An Earful and we’re about to release our 2nd episode. The general premise of the show is that it takes a theme or concept from the world of sound designers / musicians and pairs it with everyday ‘normal’ people stuff. It’s meant to be accessible, entertaining and just good fun.
So moving forward I would love to feature some of the talent from AudioJungle on the show, as I’m sure many of you have really brilliant stories and insight to share. You can find a list of guest spots I’m looking to fill in the near future here . You can also subscribe to the show on iTunes here .
Any feedback, or ideas, or stories, etc. are all welcome and I’d love to even work some of your work into the show if you want to throw ideas my way!
Thanks again everybody, hope you enjoy it!
Here’s a quick list of possible ways I’d like to get people involved off the top of my head…
- I would really love to get a few of us sound designers together posting resources/thoughts/interviews/etc. over at soundslikeanearful.com . If you would be interested in sharing your expertise a few times a week, it could become a place for us to debate, discuss, teach and experiment.
- Each episode of the podcast will have an over-arching theme (see a list of examples here) and will end with a segment that features an original sound composition (or ‘song’) based on that theme. I am looking for different artists each episode to collaborate with on these compositions.
- I am also still looking for guests for each episode. Just to speak about experiences they’ve had (as an example, if you’ve had a profound experience in your life that is still triggered by a specific sound, you could tell that story in the “Nostalgia of Sound” episode).
- Last but definitely not least, I need help getting it out there in order to find listeners/guests/funders/etc. If you like the idea and want to be a part of it, let me know, share the link on Twitter, reach out to friends on Facebook who might be interested, etc. Basically, I am set on making a really cool podcast about sound design, but it is definitely going to be a better show if we get the whole community involved.
Again thanks everybody! I’ll be continuing to post updates on how the show is developing at (indiegogo.com/soundslikeanearful) and I’m always open to any crazy ideas anyone might have
All the best! Christopher
Hey everybody in the AudioJungle community,
In case we haven’t bumped into each other, I’m Christopher, I live and work in Toronto, Canada and I make lots of hair-brained creative things . I am currently developing a brand spankin’ new audio podcast all about sound design and the nature of storytelling through sound. It will feature original music/sound that plays with telling my guests’ stories in innovative new ways.
I realized that AudioJungle is the place to find interesting people to not only help support the show, but also be a part of it! If you are at all interested in being on the podcast, or might know someone who is, check out this link for more info:
Currently I plan to create the first fixed-run (8 episodes) of the series myself using crowd-funding. Once this run of the show is released I plan to take it to our biggest radio broadcaster here in Canada (the CBC ) and pitch it to them as a full series! Again, any support, interest, feedback, criticisms, etc. are very much appreciated so send em my way at chrispostill @ gmail . com !

I just found this thread now and am SO down. Don’t suppose I can convince you fellas to jump back on board can I?
I’d be willing to add banjo/guitar/keys/banging on a tree and film my contribution.
Afternoon IFT ,
Might track this work for you?
Best of luck with the app!
