foley artists

Coudal Partners’ Fresh Signals directs our attention to the archives of Open Culture (with a nice preamble, segue worth indulging too) from earlier this year announcing that the BBC will make its library of sound effects available to all and can be downloaded, should one find a clever ringtone.
The collection is comprised of over sixteen thousands effects and audio samples that have been used and reused over the decades, and the network was motivated to share its library at the bidding of an organisation that cares for the elderly with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in hopes that the familiar noises might trigger memories and strengthen new associations. Check out the archive for yourself here and let us know some of your resonant favourites.
