Record a sound for the Covid 19 Sound Map

Members of the Acoustical Society of New Zealand have been asked to mark the International Day of Sound by contributing to the Covid 19 Sound Map.

We will record soundbytes on our phones that show how life in New Zealand is returning to normal following Covid restrictions, and upload them to the Google Earth-based sound map.

We humbly acknowledge that life for us is more normal than in many other parts of the world, and will take a moment to be thankful for this.

Location: All of New Zealand

Organisation Responsible: Acoustical Society of New Zealand
