There is an igloo near a geodesic dome in a field("poly canyon") surrounded
by hills just next to Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo. Inside the igloo all manner
of delays are possible up to 1 plus seconds to reverbish slapback.
There was a wonderful acoustic chamber at a now destroyed bowling alley on
stevens creek near lawrence expressway in san jose "futurama bowl"
a dome you walked under as you entered: this was particularly trippy if you
drank a few beers first because the sound would get trapped in there and
become so concussive it could theoretically knock a person out. maybe it's
better they levelled it for safety's sake.
If you go into Fry's electronics in sunnyvale, ca just as you enter the
is dome shaped. there is a brass star on the floor just as you enter: if
person stands there and the other on the brass star on the floor about 20
feet away on the other edge of the ceiling dome, you can whisper and the
other person can hear you.
If you go hiking up directly above Emerald Bay in lake tahoe(which i highly
recommend with or without echo-seeking interest!:)), toward Eagle lake you
will pass over a bridge, then the trail winds around abit and then just
where you pass over a flat barren kind of a rocky slab if you go to the
of the slab, overlooking the creek/river below and facing the mountain on
the other side of it, there is an outrageous, long, full echo. Interesting
acoustics at Eagle lake itself, surrounded by mountains. BTW there are also
POV visual effects at the lake as well, as there are rock formations
up the mountainside opposite where you enter that little valley and with no
point of reference proximal to it a rock which looked like it might have
been 6 inches wide and maybe ten feet high can surprise you when you see a
figure climbing or descending it, only to realizing that if that little ant
sized figure is a person, then the rock is hundreds of feet tall.
