            This research presents a Global Sound Movement (GSM), that brings together cultures and communities to share their art form to a broader audience. The GSM enables those in social and/or economic need to express their music to a global audience. GSM focuses on the building, motivations and sustainability of communities by crafting ways to capture the sounds from within the environment. After months of on location recordings we introduce a unique set of values around the processes and methods we use to resurrected these hidden sounds. We use Human Computer Interaction (HCI) methods as a way of collecting the samples and distributing via an online portal. Moving forward we are keen to explore the use of a toolkit to enable other researchers, practitioners and communities to assist in the collection process, building up larger sets of sounds on the GSM platform.
