This project got more interesting as it went along. Initially I found it very difficult to be patient enough to listen for different sounds that I normally would never stop to listen for. I think it was a very effective way of helping me to notice the world around me. People often say that one should take more time to stop and smell the roses, but after doing this assignment I would say that people should also stop and listen to them too. If there is one thing the I would say I learned, for sure, is that I don’t like the sound of “silence,” because it’s really quite loud and distracting when you listen to it for too long. I found myself getting very distracted by things that were humming or buzzing or thumping that I normally wouldn’t hear. I would also say that I discovered how sounds interact with each other a bit. When given the time to listen, it really does become evident that no matter what or how many sounds you put together, they will create something that is totally new and different from what the original sounds were.
