It’s been less than a month since the first recording was put on Nature Soundmap, and since then 31 recordists with recordings from 24 different countries have come onboard and I’m busy just trying to keep up! Thank you to all who have agreed to be a part of the project.
Refinements to the design of the website so far have included –
- new logo
- reducing the size of design elements such as the header and floating window
- Soundcloud media player now sits nicely along the bottom of the page
If you have any suggestions on how to improve functionality or design please let me know.
With such a good network of contributors and an abundance of interesting content, the Nature Soundmap blog has great potential for featuring recordists and their sounds.
Initially blog posts will include the following:
- Highlights from each country or region
- Featured Recordists
- Featured Sounds
Rather than try and create all of the articles myself, I’d like to involve others in the writing and creation of blog posts/articles. Many contributors already have their own websites and blogs, so if you have interesting and relevant content please feel free to send me an email and we’ll see if we can adapt something for the Nature Soundmap blog.
Profile pages for individual recordist will be made so if you haven’t already please send me some information which may include the following –
- Profile picture/photo
- Link to your website (or other blog/pages)
- Contact details
- Some information about your work.
- A few words about who you are/ background / how you got into recording /where you are from
Don’t worry too much about the wording, I can refine it.
Thanks again for all your support and at this rate the site will be ready for a public launch in December 2013!
