New things I learned today

Three terms– anthrophony, biophony, geophony. If I give you the context (soundwalks, etc) I’m sure you’ll figure it out. Some other interesting ideas from today’s workshop leader Andrea Polli (by way of Barry Truax) relate to hearing exercises, pre-soundwalk:

1) Listen for the most distant sound.
2) Listen for the nearest sound.
3) Listen for the loudest sound.
4) Listen for the quietest sound.

These were interesting, and a bit more difficult to discern at times than I would have guessed. We also spoke about soundmarks, sound signals, and the keynote– all terms I am familiar with, but it is always nice to refresh and re-think.
