my hour of sound was really interesting. i clocked mine basically from when i woke up and was surfing the internet until i was in the backyard trying to read a book but getting sidetracked by a howling dog and birds and just generally paying attention to everything around me. very interesting! if you have a phone capable of receiving video i could even send you 15 seconds of my feet in a hammock and birds chirping. haha.
here is my list, and i hope you have a fantastic day!

from 8 pm - 9 pm on June 27th i was biking home from work and halfway into the hour, it started to pour. These are the sounds i heard during that hour:
- sizzling food on a cooking pan
- dog barking
- birds chirping
- cars revving and braking at lights
- my stomach growling
- speeding ambulance
- chain linked fence gates being swung open and shut
- little boy telling his mom he "FELT A RAINDROP!"
- the clicks and squeeks of my bike
- thunder clap!
- car alarm set off
- trees rustling in a gust of wind
- italian trumpet solo from the balcony speakers of Caponies pizza place
- deep drone from the 90 Harlem CTA bus
- empty paper bags and flat plastic pop bottles shuffling against the curb
- the high pitched hum from the 7-11 sign
- cars, cars, cars
- laughter from middle aged smoking women on three story apartment balcony
- Jiffy Lube ad flags flapping maniacally in the wind
- loose car parts scratching against the street
- unknown low pops and bangs in the distance
- heavy rain patter on the small tin porch roof of my home
I listened to the sounds coming from and around me for about an hour. The place I sat is always very quiet, on the edge of a ravine. Most of the sounds are muffled by a dense wall of trees. I was surprised how noisy I was just sitting there reading, and how it would be strange if the little sounds people make could be amplified over a large area and heard by people from miles around. That would be mostly gross and irritating....
-a dog barking
-a bird chittering (i wish i knew what kind of bird this was. it made one long continuous chitter for most of the time i sat outside)
-a kid laughing
-wind blowing through the poplars
-someone speeding on the highway
-swallowing of pineapple juice
-clearing my throat
-the hum of an airplane
-another bird chirping
-a burp (yes, that was me)
-pages of a book flipping
-another airplane in the distance, getting louder
-a glass being set down
-next door neighbors opening a door
-teeth knocking against a glass
-teeth clicking as I bit the inside of my cheek
-a siren, possibly ambulance
-kids talking excitedly again, one yells something
-intermittent gusts of wind in the trees
-a wasp buzzing
-the branch of a tree snapping
-my neck cracks
-kids banging stuff together, one yells "HEY!...MIKE!"
-a car accelerates on the highway
-a robin's wings flutter
-the wood creaks in the wall of my house
At this point I stopped because the same sounds kept repeating in different variations. Plus it was getting cold out.
