For those of you unaware, I have been lucky enough to get a wildly useful piece of technology called “the iPhone”.
It’s popular. You’ve likely heard of it…
I could go on and on, but won’t.
There’s a free app called Audioboo that allows users to record up to 5 minutes of sound, add a photo and tags to that sound, and then upload it to the internet immediately from the iPhone.
I have been using this for a little while now, interviewing bands, artists, festival promoters, etc, to show folks just how much is going on in this city, province, and country with regard to cultural talent.
So yes, when i post some of these interviews, they are happening minutes from the time they were recorded. It allows you to have a connection with an event or person that is actually still relatively within your reach (seeing their show, making it to their art opening etc.).
I’ll keep you posted.
You can either listen to the posts here when I embed them. Or you can go to my Audioboo download page now and again to check what’s uploaded. OR, the best option, subscribe to the podcast (internet episodes) on iTunes…so you can have them automatically downloaded to your MP3 player.
