Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
I usually upload sound archives of these categories:
Folías (tic tac) with prepared piano, toy piano and kalimba
  • Music and sound experiments that I created (for remix purposes).
Campanario de la Catedral Basílica de San Juan de los Lagos, Jalisco
  • Soundscapes of places that I consider important.
Sound effects (coins, knocks, percussions)
  • Sounds that can be used as 'sound effects'
In this talk I'll show my point of view as an enthusiast of recording, producing and editing sounds; and the importance of uploading sound files for various reasons: creative (remix), documentation and because sounds are another forms of knowledge that we need to consider in this project and occasionally is underrated.
Other types of sound files are also important, such as sound recording of different languages, recordings of important speeches, recited poems, voices of people protesting in the streets. Why store sounds with free licenses?
According to the theory of the Remix (Navas, Ferguson) the whole culture is a network of information that has been replicating and mixing; Free licenses can help the sounds survive, be shared and build new knowledge.
What will attendees take away from this session?
Attendees will be more receptive to upload their own sound files to Wikimedia Commons, create new categories and share sounds of all sort of kinds to a vary of purposes.

  1. Great topic! I am also doing audio uploads (e.g. commons:Category:Audio files from open-access scholarly articles) and would love to see/ hear more of that. Also interested in doing some recordings on-site. Daniel Mietchen (talk) 16:40, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
