At first, I was very skeptical of this entire sound journal observation experience, but I began to find it increasingly interesting. I am not the type of person who generally stops to consider how sounds interact or analyze the sounds that I hear on a daily basis. For this project, however, I was forced to. After my observations, I realized that some of the sounds made by my parents’ washing machine were similar to those made by my hamster (the pitter-patter noise) as well as were similar to some of the noises made by my roommate typing on her computer. Although some of the noises were similar, I was surprised at the variety of noises that certain objects made and was impressed with the information that one can gather through common, everyday noises. I was particularly astounded that I could hear that certain keys on my roommate’s keyboard stuck based on the different noise that those few keys made. Overall, this experience made much more aware of the noises around me and how interesting those noises can be.
