RSR224 – Jesse & Jonah Marks – Capturing Sounds Around The World at The Touch of Sound

​Jesse & Jonah talked about travelling the world to capture authentic stereo sounds, the powerful effect of audio over photos and video, perfect portable recording gear, and much more!

My guests today are Jesse and Jonah Marks, the founders and curators of The Touch of Sound, a recording adventure and website dedicated to authentically capturing the sounds of the world. 

Anything from fish markets in Japan and Turkey to Sea Lions in the Galapagos Islands to the street musicians of Cuba will make it onto their website which includes sounds they themselves have captured plus sounds from contributors like yourselves Rockstars. Hint Hint.

Jesse is an audio engineer who began recording location sounds for potential use in his professional and personal projects. Jonah is an avid traveller whose passion for exploration has taken them around the globe. Whenever possible, they travel together at a furious pace, but their obsession with collecting sounds slows them down to appreciate the moments. Over the past 12 years, they have travelled the world with a microphone and a mission: to collect authentic and high-quality audio recordings.
