Thank you for your interest in Social Tapes.
The world is a big place and now, more than ever, we are realizing that we need to start making bigger decisions about finding and understanding the balance between us and nature. Social Tapes is an social sound project that encourages us to think about how we relate ourselves with nature and how it shapes our culture. The key idea of this project is 'awareness'- concretely, awareness of the issues relating to us and our natural surroundings; and abstractly, the awareness the awareness of ourselves within it.
The Social Tapes website contain supplemental information about each project as given by the organizations to give you more information about their project and what they are doing about it. All albums may be purchased via our Store link above.
Social Tapes is a Bivouac Recording label project and it is not a charity. We are not a registered non-profit organization and we do not accept donations. Our funding does come from the albums we sell, so we have to make them pretty damn good. For Social Tapes, there is a lot of pre-production that goes on before we even press record. We contact and work with NGOs and related organizations to plan and coordinate the recordings and logistics of the visit. This cooperation gives us access to information and locations that may not usually be accessible to the public. It is only with the equal dedication of everyone involved that allow us to create these albums and bring knowledge and awareness no matter how big or small, to the world.
If your organization would like a Social Tape made for your project or cause please contact us.
Finally, Social Tapes is an open project and any recordist can be a part of it. We can't be everywhere at once and we don't speak every language so an international network of like-minded sound recordists can truly be beneficial for this project. Please contact us for more information.
Thanks for listening and we hope you enjoy Social Tapes.
