Volunteers wanted

I project I'm running that's looking at the sounds people associate with places is looking for volunteers. Basically we're looking for people to visit our web page, listen to a few groups of sounds, and vote on the ones that remind them most of one of the places. Each visit should take around 7ish minutes, and ideally you'd come back to the page a few times over the next 2-3 months.

The places being studied are Stirling City Centre, Stirling University Campus, Aberdeen City Centre and  Aberdeen University Campus. At least many of you will be familiar with at least one of these! If you can spare a few minutes, please sign up and start listening to the sounds we’ve captured. The page can be found here: . At the start of this work, the sounds will seem fairly random and not necessarily good matches for the places. The idea is that as more people participate over the next couple of months, they will slowly gravitate towards something the really fits each of the places.

Also, if you can share this with others that'd be great. There's a an "official" blog post with much the same message at
