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 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…
MUKUL KUMAR: “They come from all over England, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh… They need some place to practice, this is where they can come and practice their skills. They can improve on batting, bowling or fielding… I came from India some ten years back and I have been playing cricket all my life. It’s just something that I love.”
Congratulations to this week’s winner, Vinod Iyenjar. We’ll have a new sound for you to guess and another chance to win next week.
