NEW YORK — New York City plans to add a pileated wood-pecker noise system to existing sound systems, a new project announced Thursday.
The new sound system will be installed at the New York Aquarium and will be used for the city’s sound and light display and the citywide “Sound Boom,” a concert-and-concert-style concert series, according to a city official.
“We’re adding a pileats to our existing sound, lighting and concert-type sound systems to be used to provide the city with a unique soundscape for our city’s events,” said Mark Ciavarella, the citys deputy commissioner for business development.
In addition to the Aquarium sound system and the Sound Boom concert series , the city is also considering adding a sound system for public transportation, the official said.
According to the official, the noise system will have a range of frequencies from 20 to 30 kHz, which is similar to the frequency range that is used by most noise-making devices in the United States.
