SoundTransit is a collaborative, online community dedicated to field recording and phonography.
SoundTransit is still available on the web after being forced to close, end of 2010, due to the high rent imposed by The Waag Society in Amsterdam, who physically hosted the server. Now SoundTransit has been relaunched with the help of Turbulence.org
You can book your transit on http://turbulence.org/soundtransit/
The SoundTransit project- by Marc Boon, Sara Kolster, Derek Holzer – revolves around a growing collection of environmental sounds recorded by ‘soundhunters’ from all over the world. Each sound artist described the place and moment of the recording, the characteristics of the location or the peculiarity of the sound itself. These stories add another dimension to the sounds; one that connects and simultaneously exceeds time and place.
