Tod and his team at the MIT Media Lab have been capturing all kinds of voices in Philly. From the chef at Pat's King of Steaks sharing his secrets to making delicious cheesesteaks, to raucous birds creating a "dawn chorus" at Philadelphia Zoo, to high school students reciting the Preamble to the Constitution, we continue to be amazed by the energy, diversity, and musicality of Philadelphia voices.
In this first blog post of our Composer's Picks series, we share 13 of Tod's favorite voices from Philly so far. Check back often as the list grows, and don't forget to contribute your voices via our Philadelphia Voices mobile app. Download it (iOS, Android) today to start recording the sounds around you. Your submissions may be featured in our next Composer's Picks blog post!
