What is Found Sound?

Found Sound may be as simple as exploring various sounds, textures, and patterns; from using our own body (clapping, foot stomping, tapping lap, voice), to pots/pans, coffee cans, water bottles, spoons or anything else found in our everyday lives. 


Found sound also allows for exploration of sounds that occur in our environment, either naturally outside, like birds, wind, leaves, crickets, or sounds in our indoor environment phone ringing, PA system sounds, fridge whirring, and clock ticking.
