Please excuse cross postings.
The first winner of Vivian Adelberg Rudow’s Music Sound Puzzles is Birgitta
Tollan, swedish music journalist and radio producer on swedish public radio
(Sveriges Radio.) Tollan lives in
Copenhagen, Denmark. Her up coming show, Monitor will feature Elzbieta
Sikora on Wednesday April 13 at 21 to 22 in Sweden.

Answer: A toilet flushing.
Puzzle 1 was composed by Adelberg Rudow in 1972 as a splicing assignment in
electronic music class. She used classic standard tape techniques: Slowing
down, speeding up of the recorded sound on a tape recorder, plus numerous
splices of the sounds cut and reattached to the tape in different mixed up order.
The music was NOT processed. All the sounds are derived from the toilet
flushing. It was premiered playing over the radio.

The most creative answer was by Matthew D. Mattingly, Multimedia Director
Center for Computer-Based Instructional Technology, at the University of
Massachusetts Amherst: Hosing down a computer printer in the driveway!

The most guesses was for a vacuum cleaner.

Watch for the May Sound Puzzle.

Best wishes,

Vivian Adelberg Rudow
