Audio Mosaic Project

We’re inviting you to join us in a new experiment we’re calling the Audio Mosaic Project. The sound of place has always been an important part of our show — think the chirps of crickets, the flow of water, the crunch of boots on snow. Using the noises we take for granted in the backgrounds of our lives, we bring listeners right there with us, to the places we report.   For over a year now, we haven’t been able to travel and get out into the world to collect sound. So as we work on season four of our show, we’re asking for your help to create that sense of auditory travel.    We’re releasing prompts that will give you audio collecting assignments. You don’t need any special equipment aside from your smart phone, and anyone can participate. You can submit to as many or as few prompts as you like, and your sounds may just end up in the next season of Threshold!  You can find details and sign up on our website:
