The Freesound Project

The Freesound Project is a collaborative database of Creative Commons licensed sounds. Freesound focusses only on sound, not songs.
The Freesound Project aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, ... released under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus License. The Freesound Project provides new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to
• browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a "sounds-like" type of browsing and more
• up and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license
• interact with fellow sound-artists
The project also aims to create an open database of sounds that can also be used for scientific research.

Furthermore, he showcases an example of a students’ project called MacBeth Wars, which was first discussed on Infinite Thinking Machine (http://www.infinitethinking.org/2007/04/itm-7-show-tell.html).
