I have to admit I enjoy listening to music and sounds, but before doing this journal I had never found myself putting thought into the origins of sounds and how they blend and contrast with one another. When first listening I had no idea what to record or how to go about this journal. However, I did it because I was asked and found it interesting by the time I was finished. I found myself analyzing other sounds and focusing on sound as I participated in my daily errands. I found that sounds resembled other noises no matter where they came from but also differed from one another. For instance, it was interesting to look at how I heard many crackling sounds but in each setting they were different and made by different objects. When I listened to the sound of the television from the other room I found it fascinating how the crescendo of certain sounds built up the suspense and allowed me to picture scenes without even seeing the screen. Sound is so much more than a simple song or a thud that can be heard in another room because each sound has a story behind it. After doing this sound journal I found that every noise has it’s similarities and differences, yet sounds blend and mold together to form a different noise. After this I discovered that the idea of sound is much more complex then I would have imagined.
