Audiograph's Sound of the Week: Swedish Christmas

Dec 1, 2016

Here's the sound we played as a clue. We asked 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...

Karin Gaensler: We've looked at each other and thought, 'Isn't it extraordinary that here we are on the Pacific Rim with all of these families and children recreating our childhood?

You can check out the Swedish Christmas Fair this Saturday, December 3rd. For more information click here.   

Our winner was Anna Bealer. For everyone else, we'll have a new sound for you to guess and another chance to win next week.
