What does WWS do?
WWS is recording the endangered or disappearing sounds of industrial society – including sounds people try/tried to protect themselves from. During 1st September 2013 and 31st September 2015 we will record at least 600 sounds in their original settings. Every sound will also be documented: What and where is it? And how did we record it?
WWS will be creating a soundscape of industrial Europe.

All sounds on Workwithsounds.eu are downloadable and free to use wherever you want. Credits have to be given to the person who recorded the sound.
