Signature sounds paint an audio picture of a specific place. And we’d like to know if there’s a signature sound from where you live. I’m Jim Metzner and this is the Pulse of the Planet.

If you’ve been to San Francisco, you’ll recognize the signature sound of a cable car bell.

The call to prayer is one of the signature sounds of the Middle East. This recording was made in the courtyard of the Blue Mosque, in Istanbul, Turkey.

Here’s a signature sound from New England: the haunting calls of Loons.

Is there a signature sound from your household or neighborhood? Or perhaps you’ve encountered a unique sound in your travels. As you’ve heard from our examples, they can be environmental or man-made. Visit our website, pulseplanet.com and check out ‘This Month’s Feature Story’ for instructions on how to send us or describe your signature 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. Go to pulseplanet.com and click on ‘This Month’s Feature Story’.

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