Audiograph's Sound of the Week: The Grand National Rodeo

Oct 24, 2013

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...

TODD FITZSIMMONS: We came out to watch the rodeo tonight. My favorite part about coming here is all of Northern California kind of converges on one area for the Grand National Rodeo. It's a like-minded way of life. We all feel this way about our livestock and our animals. You look out in that arena and you see the events going on, that's not just an event, that's a way of life.

Congratulations to this week's winner, Glen. We'll have a new sound for you to guess and another chance to win next week.
