NPR Needs The Sounds of Your City

When you think about where you live, what sounds come to mind? In Washington, D.C., the sound might be the click of a camera shutter made by tourists. But what about your city?

  • Kids splashing in a pool?
  • Train whistles?
  • A pick-up basketball game at the neighborhood court?
  • Foghorns?
  • The clatter of pots and pans at your favorite restaurant?
  • Construction equipment?
  • Crickets chirping in the early evening?

The NPR Cities Project is seeking out the sounds you hear every day that make where you live unique. Your sound could air on All Things Considered or the brand-new TED Radio Hour, or become part of a multimedia interactive.
