morning room sounds

Posted in: Miscellaneous, Life & Culture

an uninterrupted 20 minutes, approx. 9 am, my room on the fifth floor of east campus: outside sounds, sink sounds, door sounds, my sounds

use headphones for maximum sense of transported-ness


The ear favors no particular "point of view." We are enveloped by sound. It forms a seamless web around us. We say, "Music shall fill the air." We never say, "Music shall fill a particular segment of the air." We hear sounds from everywhere, without ever having to focus.
