Audiograph's Sound of the Week: Golden Gate Fields in Albany
All week long we've been playing you a 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 new 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, Audiograph producer Julie Caine will reveal the origins of that week's sound on Crosscurrents, and here in weekly blog posts. Did you have time to listen? Read on or listen above for the answer...
HERMAN MILLER: Everybody knows me as Miller “The Champ”. We’re at Golden Gate Fields in Albany, California. I come out probably only on the weekend, once, three times a month. You know, bring about $100 bucks to try to win. I play horses, but I take it very serious. You know, horses are glorious animals. Of course they say cheetahs run the fastest, but horses also are very fast, and of course, it’s like the king’s sport, you know?
Congratulations to this week's winner, Susan Stone. We'll have a new sound for you to guess, and a new prize, next week.
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.
