Virtual travel through sound

Like the [“one-minute vacations”]( I [previously discovered](, the Radio Aporee project collects ambient audio clips from around the world and plays them while displaying satellite photos of the location. They even have [an Android app]( so you can take the experience mobile, and make your own recordings.

I like to record ambient audio and video from places I visit; playing the clips back later is a great way to transport your mind to another time and place.

[The Western Soundscape Archive]( is another great collection, containing natural sounds from the American West.
