On windy days, for more than a year, a strange sound has resounded in several neighborhoods of San Francisco (USA).

Some describe it as the “chant of a Buddhist monk.” To others, it reminds them of a “Tibetan bowl” or a “harmonica.” For others it is an “unbearable buzz”.

Its appearance in June 2020 caused a stir throughout the city: dozens of people took to the streets trying to find the origin and the San Francisco authorities themselves did not have a clear idea where the noise was coming from.

Some even attributed it to the wildest theories, from sonic attacks to messages from aliens or from the “afterlife.”
