We’re listening to one of the signature sounds of Boston the bells of Old North Church. I’m Jim Metzner and this is the Pulse of the Planet. What’s a signature sound? Well it’s a sound that has become identified with a particular place. We’re hoping to soon be hearing some of the sound signatures from where you live.

If you live near the Platte River in south central Nebraska, this time of year you’ll be likely to hear this signature sound the call of roosting Sandhill Cranes, during their annual migration.

It’s not only migrating animals that carry their sounds with them. Here’s a signature sound from the Middle East the ululation of Arab women in moments of celebration. Except this recording was made in Paris, where a group of Algerians were celebrating their team’s winning a game in the World Cup.

We’d like to hear your signature sounds perhaps its something from your neighborhood, or a sound that’s part of a tradition that you grew up with. Visit our website, pulseplanet.com and check out ‘This Month’s Feature Story’ for instructions on how to send us your sounds. We plan to select a few sounds to air on a future Pulse of the Planet program. If yours is selected, we’ll send you a copy of our Pulse of the Planet CD, which includes over thirty extraordinary sounds. The deadline to send in sounds is March 31st.

Pulse of the Planet is presented by the National Science Foundation. I’m Jim Metzner.
