Overall Summary: for me this sound journal has helped open my eyes to just how much sound can, within our given realms of perception, place us within certain frames of time and space. Such as when the idea of snowmobile sounds on a Wednesday morning snapped me back into the reality of it being vacation. Also, I truly gained a clearer perspective on just how much ambient noise there is and how much I personally have taken sounds for granted, usually writing them off as simple background. But when I brought some of those sounds to the center of my perception and thought process, I discovered how rich and even complex their textures are. Not to mention was able to uncover and piece together a musical composition, simply by layering the sound from a car’s tires moving on pavement. I found that what I thought were very plain, simple noises, were actually very complex and intricate series of sounds that mesh, or articulate themselves in incredibly interesting ways.
