What's the sound of where you live?

Audiograph, a crowd-sourced collaborative radio project hosted by reporter Julie Caine, will take you on a tour of the Bay Area, mapping the sonic signature of each of its nine counties. 

For more, visit Audiograph website or follow Audiograph on Twitter and Facebook.

Or drop us a line at listen@audiographradio.org.

All week long we've been playing you 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.

Audiograph: A piano burns in Half Moon Bay

All month long at sundown people have been coming to the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Half Moon Bay to play and listen to a baby grand piano. Originally, it belonged to Elida Oetell. When her house was foreclosed, she had to leave the piano behind. The new owner, Christina Conklin, tried to get it tuned for her kids to play, but it was beyond repair. So she called Mauro Di Nucci. He calls himself Mauro Ffortissimo. He’s an artist, sculptor and musician, and he likes to make things out of pianos.
