^ Yes, I thought he'd get a mention sooner or later, but yes, he's absolutely right. I'm going to pay more attention to sounds if I can - which is something you must've done, Frownland, to like something so specific.

^ Rain is a favourite sound for many people: very natural, very relaxing. This sound is neither of those things: it's kind of stressful in a minor way, esp when you are actually in the tunnel, getting the full force of the acoustics.


Ironically, the tension-inducing sound of arrival is what you are hoping for: every day many Londoners strain their ears for that first hollow metalic whisper, because it means they'll be able to advance their journey. Conversely, the smoother sound of the retreating train is something you learn to loathe. It means, "Drat! I've just missed a train and now I'll have to wait for another."

^ That's interesting. I've tried ambient soundscapes occasionally, but never consistently. Sooner or later they usually bug me a little, although I did develop a liking for this album many years ago:

There are moments as a storm is starting to come in, but it hasn't quite reached the area yet, where the wind remains constant and powerful. I live in a state forest. Lots of trees. The wind rushing at a constant pace through the trees which drowns out any neighboring sounds is something I'd like to hear for eternity after I die.



Pretty much that.

I like to rest my ear on my dog’s belly and listen to her insides.

^ That's a charming image, and a rare glimpse of OH at peace with the world.

On the topic of animal noises, some are soothing, others not. The sound of cows mooing is nice, but I really hate barking dogs. Unfortunately, in a Mexican city you never hear cows, but boy do people have a lot of noisy dogs!

And if anyone is curious, here's a a decibel chart of common sounds:-

I love the sound of wind through sheoak trees along the beach. The long needle like leaves create a low gasping whistle.

Spoiler for decibel chart:
There's someone in my neighborhood that lives about a quarter mile from me, with a dog that starts barking as soon as they let it out of the house and keeps barking incessantly until it's let back inside. It doesn't matter how long it's outside, (even a couple of hours or more) the dog will bark nonstop.
They're just far enough away from me that it's noticeable but not terribly annoying, though.
I feel sorry for the neighbors that live closer than I do.

The sound of the crackling of a campfire and crickets feels like the sound of comfort and security to me. But the sound of flowing water, like with a small stream or a nearby river or waterfall, I also find quite soothing and calming. Rain though, I absolutely adore the sound of. I live in Florida, and I actually like the sound of the rain so much that I intentionally put my bed next to the glass door in my bedroom that leads out to the back porch. If I've had a rough night, that trickling sound of the raindrops breaking as they land around the porch actually helps me fall asleep. The only downside to me doing that of course, is the temperature. So I have an old black king-size blanket doubling over my curtains to help with the heat since I'd have to get custom curtains made and I ron't really want to spend that kind of money when I can just lazily cheap fix it instead. Howling winds and the sounds of storms, especially during hurricane season when the power goes out, I also find quite calming....which reminds me, I should stock up on some candles and do some cleaning in preparation. Even though I don't have electricity during hurricane season for sometimes several weeks at a time, the lack of electricity really inspires me as a musician because it forces the natural sounds of the atmosphere into place. Sometimes when I was a kid I'd go on long walks at very late hours, 2:30 and 3:00 AM when I was 15 and 16 years old, from the distance I could hear cars passing on the highway, and occasionally the sound of the cargo train passing through downtown....I suppose that's probably part of why machinery interests me.
