University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life SciencesLocal artist Alex Jimenez and Tucson Water are inviting YOU to join their community-wide audio project by recording the unique sounds of the tropical storms that visit us each year.
"A chubasco is a particularly violent storm with thunder and lightning that drops water in a deluge. Pause from your busy life and record a 3 minute sample of the chubasco speaking. Audio submitted will be collected into a Chubasco Channel on YouTube. There, the public can listen to Tucson monsoon sounds at their leisure."
