Audiograph's Sound of the Week: Philip & Sala Burton High School Band

Mar 26, 2015

 

All week long we've been playing this sound, and asking you to guess what exactly it is and where exactly in the Bay Area we recorded it.

This auditory guessing game is part of our project, Audiograph, a crowd-sourced collaborative radio project mapping the sonic signature of each of the Bay Area’s nine counties. By using the sounds of voices, nature, industry, and music, Audiograph tells the story of where you live, and the people who live there with you. Every Thursday, we reveal the origins of that week's sound on Crosscurrents, and here in weekly blog posts.

Listen above for the full answer...

EMILY TANG: I actually didn’t like band, but then percussion really changed my life. It opened my eyes to different parts of rhythm, and I realized how important it was to music in general.

Congratulations to this week's winner, Robert Weiner! We'll have a new sound for you to guess and another chance to win coming up next Thursday.  

In the meantime, is there a sound from your life that should be featured on Audiograph? Call at 415-264-7106 and tell us about the sound of where you live.
