Audiograph's Sound of the Week: Sound Commons

Ninna Gaensler-Debs
Chime Line at Sound Commons

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 Audiograph, a crowd-sourced collaborative radio project mapping the Bay Area’s sonic signature. Audiograph tells the story of where you live, and the people who live there with you. Every Thursday, we tell you the story behind our weekly mystery sound on Crosscurrents, and here in weekly blog posts.


DeShawn Stallsworth: One person could be at the other end - you could talk to somebody you don't know and they could feel safe or comfortable to talk back to you without invading their space. So it's a good way just to break down the social barriers from people you experience in everyday life.

Listen above for the full answer.

Check out our FacebookTwitter, and Soundcloud pages to hear more from Audiograph.
