Contribute your sounds of Essex

We invite you to add your own sounds of Essex to this audio map: any noises recorded within the county (loosely defined!). You can upload MP3 files directly, or you can upload your sounds to SoundCloud or Audioboom first.  You can also add video clips from YouTube or Vimeo. Our editors will check your contribution and publish it as soon as possible. You might also be invited to submit your sounds to the Essex Sound and Video Archive for permanent preservation.

Please ask permission before recording anyone who would be identifiable from the recording, or before taking any pictures of identifiable people. We will not be able to publish personal images or recordings without this permission.

A contact e-mail address is the only required information, but giving us contextual information about the recording will help others fully enjoy your sound of Essex.

At the bottom of this page, you will find a pdf of cards that you can print and take with you when you are recording. These will help you capture information about the sound at the time of recording.
