The creator of the sound presses the metal button on a pedestrian crosswalk warning light and it audibly beeps. This assists individuals who are visually-impaired in safely crossing the street; the tone is louder on the other side of the crosswalk so that individuals know which direction to walk toward. Generally, several people stand on all sides of a busy intersection and wait for the pedestrian crosswalk warning light to change (both in tone and color) so that they can cross the street safely. Crosswalks are often located in between hospitals and parking structures, and should thus be considered part of the transition from the outside world to that of receiving care and experiencing illness.

With the increasing rarity and rate at which a VCR and a VHS is needed for study, one must have the right tools for the job. In such a case, multiple VCR and VHS media can be found and experienced in the Sibley Music Library at the Eastman School of Music. TV number 4 in Sibley's listening room provides a short burst of static noise accompanied with a brief display of what is commonly referred to as "snow" (random pixel pattern). In the recording excerpt, the sounds heard are those of the power button being depressed, the sound of static (which sounds kind of like a short and rapid snare drum roll), and silence. I repeatedly turn the television on and off in order to capture the resultant static that serves as the transition sound between silences.

Whenever I'm working at home, I enjoy using my iPod classic (yes, it's true), computer, and/or iPhone SE as playback devices to accompany whatever activity I may be doing at that moment. I noticed that every time I use the 1/8" stereo jack chord that is attached to the external speakers (4 total - 1 bass and 3 smaller speakers) to my playback device, there would be a hum/"record skipping" type noise that would emit from the speakers. This sound is short-lived and occurs very quickly before the 1/8" jack is completely inserted; however, it is a noticeable source of noise.
