Melville, New York, April 21, 2004---Birds chirping, jackhammers rattling, steel drums playing, trains screeching, sopranos singing---these are some of the sounds of New York City in May. Researchers from around the world will discuss some of these sounds, and many others, at the 75th Anniversary Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) from May 24-28 in New York City. All technical sessions will be held at the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers, 811 7th Avenue (on 53rd Street), 212-581-1000. More than 1200 papers will be presented.
