You must forward a copy of your donation receipt to received the download links. Please fully read below for instructions.

Late last year, 614 recordists from 62 countries joined forces to record over 4,600 ambiences from around the world. The total run time of all the sounds strung together would play for more than 19 days straight. The goal was to create a global library of ambience recordings, and also to use this project to raise money for the wonderful charity The Water Project. In exchange for a donation of $99 or more, a copy of the library would be offered up. Our initial fundraising drive raised over $43,000. Because of the size of the project (over 500 gigabytes for the .Wav version), I had to take the files down, and I closed the project.

Enough people that missed out have now shown interest again in the project, and I realize I can't pass up this opportunity to continue to raise some money for the project. I have restored all the files, and am so opening up the project to donations again. So here's how it works, please read everything that follows:

This project will not stay open indefinitely. Once you donate and receive the emailed instructions, please download the files as soon as possible. At some point, I will close the fundraiser, and shortly thereafter I will remove the files again from storage (it costs me to keep the files up, a cost that comes out of my own pocket).

Click the Donate button on this page, and donate $99 US or more. Then forward me the email that you receive from The Water Project clearing showing your name and the donated amount. Send it to [email protected]. Make sure My Home appears in the subject line of your email so I don't miss it. I will then send you an email with links to download the entire library. Please be patient as this step is done by hand, it may take me a day or two to respond.

If you work in a facility and are interested in acquiring a site license to this library please contact me before donating, site licenses may be available but must be negotiated on a case by case basis.

And please be aware, that while normally donations to this charity would be tax deductible, since we are offering you something in exchange, donations made will NOT legally be tax deductible.

Be warned, this is a BIG library. 536 gigabytes in WAVE format, or 307 gigabytes in FLAC, with an additional 21 gigabytes for the Atmos bonus material. Make sure you have enough drive space to download. The project is split into packages of about 30 gigs for each download.

Thank you for helping us raise money for an amazing cause.

Tim (and the My Home recordists)

How this works

Dirty water impacts health, education, women, and income. Providing a reliable and safe water source allows communities to thrive.

The Water Project provides access to safe and reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa. Together, our support can end the water crisis and restore hope, one community at a time.

The coolest part? We'll all get to see our impact! Every gift is directly linked to a specific water project and community. We'll receive updates including photos and stories, maps and more!

Lives change when communities gain access to clean water. Let's experience it together. Make a donation to my fundraising campaign today!
