My friend, Justin Fisher is a recording engineer in St. Louis. He hears and manipulates sound all day, everyday. Today he said the best sound to him is the sound of his child in full belly laugh while playing.
I was just in New Orleans finalizing some unfinished business and I recorded the sounds from my sister's back patio. New Orleans is known for sound. The sound I like best there is in the quiet, solitary moment - no Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, dinner party gathering, ice cubes tinkling but the heart beat of the city, what's beneath it. I recorded that sound. I can't get enough of it.
The blog will be short today. I'm going for a walk before the sun goes down. I plan to listen.
