BBC World Service’s Save Our Sounds site collects and archives all the different sounds of the world. From horses in Kyrgyzstan, to the “traffic, tea makers, markets and washerwomen” of Delhi the site examines the often overlooked acoustic eco-system of the planet, and how its evolving. Visitors can also upload their own field recordings of local areas to help build an auditory map of the world.
