I frequently visit some sound designers blogs , and this are my favorites:
this is relative a new blog with only 3 pages. There are many reflections about deep listening, silence in the world and the points of listening. It is very interesting and intriguing to read others peoples perspective about the importance of learning to listen. I wish there wasn’t that much reading and more videos but overall it is great.
I have been obsessed with this blog for a long time now. It has so many new articles about music technology and new ways of creating new sounds. In this blog I found an artist that is one of my largest inspirations, Craig Colorusso.
Craig Colorusso explores the intersection of sound, light , and space through sculpture since 2000. His creations consist of wood, metal , fabric and electronics. My favorite installation that Colorusso has made is the Sun Boxes; It consist of a stereo that radiates different sound depending on the landscape. The sun box accommodates and interacts with the landscape.

This last blog is focus more in sound effects and designing sounds . There are several videos demostrating how people simulate sounds like rain with simple artifacts. My favorite one is Liquid Metal from Soundcatcher .
I didn’t know a water phone was actually real , in fact it has so many utilities it is fascinating. This “instrument” has a huge amount of different tones that can be use to simulate any type of situation.

This artifact is usually used to call whales and other Cetaceans.
