Sound Patterns

As part of a Folkways Record science series, this compilation is divided into four sections: Natural, Musical, Location and Manmade Sounds. Recorded in 1953, the collection was considered a departure from other similar material: “Like photography and art “annuals,” each issue will include the most unusual — and most common — sounds that exist; and through aural interplay, Folkways hopes to be able to establish a mood not unlike that of seeing photographs and pictures.” The variety of sounds in this compilation, from birds to cars, paints a vivid image of a very diverse and wondrous world. Liner notes include detailed information of the sounds.

EN ESPAÑOL

Como parte de una serie sobre ciencia elaborada por Folkways Record, esta compilación se divide en cuatro secciones: natural, musical, ubicación y sonidos artificiales. Grabada en 1953, la colección fue considerada como un punto de partida de otro material similar: ”como fotografía y arte“, los anuarios ”cada edición incluirán los sonidos más inusuales -y más comunes- que existen; a través de la interacción sonora, Folkways quiere demostrar un modo no muy diferente de ver las fotografías e imagenes“.

La variedad de sonidos en esta compilación, va de las aves a los coches, pinta una imagen vívida de un mundo muy diverso y maravilloso. Las notas internas incluyen información detallada de los sonidos.
