EMPTY CITIES DURING LOCKDOWN (restrictions due to Covid-19)

The lockdown was such a restrictive and devastating measure for all the societies we live in. At the same time though, it created a unique opportunity in history from a soundscape point of view.
This sound library frames that moment.
I believe it could have, in first place, an historical and anthropological value.
Attentive listeners will be able to appreciate how a reduced human presence did actually set free sounds that were barely audible, changing the perception of them. If earlier our ears used to meet constant sound streams, compact drones due to omnipresent traffic, now they can perceive a microcosm of sounds, small details, sound objects that bounce in the empty cities, finally free. Voices and murmuring of the few people around are all muffled by the use of face masks.
Sound designers will be able to make full use of this microcosm to paint their backgrounds with lively environments, full of small sounds, buzzes, scattered voices, thuds, bells, and so on, all reverberated in empty open spaces.
With human beings locked up, sounds got unlocked!

  1. Angelo M. Farro

    The sounds of Not Only Noise are of the highest quality: they have great depth and definition.
    They tell many stories and are a beautiful sound document of this moment. Perfect for both cinematic and musical use.

  3. Massimiliano Borghesi

    I found myself using this library more and more often. I usually struggle to find the right density in ambiences recordings. Some are too dense, some too sparse. This library finds a good spot between that, the quality of the recordings is pristine and I very much appreciate the length of the takes, so that I can easily edit the bits I need to my need. Would like more like this, please!
