This sound effects archive contains sounds recorded in Cairo and Alexandria in September 2015. I spent a month in Cairo recording sounds. There are many crowds, traffic recordings and recordings of prayer calls. The city has 20 million people, 5 million cars and it never sleeps. It is truly a fantastic, noisy place, recorded in glorious 96 kHz/24 bit. I hope you enjoy the archive.
I am a Sound Recordist / Sound Designer / Supervising Sound Editor from Denmark with over 20 years of professional experience.
Over the years I have been supervising around 20 feature films, many of which I have also recorded.
I have won the Danish Film Academy Award for best sound 3 times, in 2004 for Reconstruction, 2011 for R and in 2013 for A Hijacking. In 2016 the film A War by danish director Tobias Lindholm was nominated for the best foreign language film at the Oscars, I was the supervising sound editor / sound designer on that film.
I live in Copenhagen, Denmark, and I own a small sound studio. I do sound for a living and as a hobby as well.
