Have you visited a place with a unique sound space? Can you describe the sound of a location in a unique way? Choose any location—urban or rural, indoors or outside, cacophonous or mysteriously quiet. You have 500 words to describe how sound influences place and shapes your experience. Echoes in a Lisbon square, waterdrops from an Iceland glacier: these are some of the sounds that have inspired contributors to “Sonic Geography,” our regular essay column.
