Sounds matter

As you stare up at the ceiling you are treated to a psychedelic display of constantly changing shapes that meld and split, and go with the musical flow.

In this information-laden day and age we tend to filter out data we feel interfere with our attempt to home in on the core of the matter in hand. This is often not even a proactive, conscious course of action – rather our brain simply keeps the “superfluous” stuff under wraps.

But what about sound? Here, too, we are bombarded from all angles. Ever walked along a downtown street and consciously listened to the cacophony to which we are constantly subjected? Cars, trucks, buses, motorbikes, construction works, not to mention our fellow humans prattling on vociferously on their cellphones and, if we are fortunate and sensitive enough, we might even catch the intermittent diverse calls of some of our feathered friends on high.
