Dear users, I have decided to phase out the posting on the forums on this website and move any discussions over to this private facebook group or join the Discord for realtime chat. I will not make the forums offline as there is a wealth of content, but posting has now been disabled. Thanks to all those who have contributed over the years, and I'll see you over on the Facebook group or Discord! -Tom

We want to reach new horizons in collaborative art. With this in mind, we have been curating the XSL, a free sound collection by several artists around the world. The XSL stands out from the rest of libraries by offering all sorts of original and rare audio samples. To call it just a tool would be unfair. We believe everyone will find something into it for striking inspiration.

The XSL features recordings from sound installations, underwater recordings with a custom made hydrophone, the new instrument Arpasauro inspired by harp and organ, field-recordings of wild insects, frogs, rain, thunderstorms, sea waves, planes, machines, an experimental band improvising in a cave 700 meter deep, samples of ceramics, stones, household percussion, vinyl crackle, a clavichord, a violin, a japanese choir, a vocal of a poem, analog synthesizers, drones, pads, sci-fi soundscapes... A total of 324 audio files organized in 30 sound packs.


Participants are required to create audio works with the sounds in the XSL and encouraged to collaborate in the process. Our goal is to connect creative people and to work together on something special. Something created collectively and owned by all of us. We challenge you to join our open collaboration for breaking down barriers to collective evolution!

The deadline to submit final works is March 1, 2015. A selection of the submitted works will be presented by Harvestworks (New York), Niu (Barcelona), Netlabelism (Ghent) and Thalamus Lab (Berlin).
