Well DJ Shadow and Nokia wants to know in a contest called What does your city sound like?

Now is your chance to collaborate with the inimitable DJ Shadow in his unique experiment for Nokia Trends Lab. This cutting edge music experiment offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to co-create a track with DJ Shadow using modern mobile technology.

Entitled “What does your city sound like?” DJ Shadow wants you to send him audio recordings of what you think are the most interesting and unique sounds of your city, from which he will create a totally original track. 

Nokia Trends Lab will upload the various audio recordings received at www.nokiatrendslab.com for DJ Shadow to choose the city which he feels has submitted the most interesting sounds in order to create an exclusive mix for that city. By uploading sounds you may also enter a Free Prize Draw to win one of five Nokia 5310 phones outfitted with special recording kits.The first 1,000 entrants will also automatically receive a limited edition DJ Shadow Wallpaper Pack.

Think about your city and the sounds that make it unique, e.g. trains, buses, trams, metro lines, the horn blast of boats in a harbour, people’s voices, the chimes from a certain public artsculpture, etc. It can be any sound that you feel is appropriate to identify your city. What doesyour city sound like?

The deadline for this contest is May 19th, 2008. Download the complete details here. Check out the song for the city San Francisco created by DJ Shadow.
