Chris Hambrick

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 is Audiograph--the Bay Area’s sonic signature. 

Each week, we’ll play you a sound recorded somewhere in the Bay Area. Your job? Listen to the sound (in the player above), figure out where it was recorded, and what exactly it is, then call us to let us know.

If you think you can identify this Audiograph sound of the week, call 415-264-7106. Also, tell us where to record next. We’ll give away a KALW t-shirt every week to one lucky caller.

This auditory guessing game is part of our 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, we reveal the origins of that week's sound on Crosscurrents, and here in weekly blog posts.

Welcome to Audiograph – the Bay Area’s sonic signature. Each week, we play you a sound recorded somewhere in the Bay Area, ask you to tell us what it is, and where we recorded it.  We reveal the story behind our mystery sounds every Thursday on Crosscurrents.

This week, it’s our birthday! And to celebrate two years on the air, we’re doing something a little different – a special half-hour birthday edition of Audiograph that brings together some of our favorite sounds and stories from the past year.

This week is Audiograph's birthday! To celebrate, we're giving out a special prize to the superfan who can correctly identify the most sounds in this week's special Audiograph sonic collage. We've drawn from two years of sonic clues recorded all over the Bay Area to create this auditory feast of signature sounds for you to solve.

Remember, if you're a dedicated listener, these are all sounds you've heard before. Whoever gets the most right wins our awesome anniversary prize!

This week, we met Alice Watts, the first mate on the Alma—a historic, flat-bottomed boat that sets sail from San Francisco’s Maritime Park to help people understand what it was like to work on the Bay. Watts has been teaching people how to sail the boat for more than 20 years.
