I have escaped from the big city for a few days. Here I can concentrate on sounds — no cars, no people everywhere. I hear birds. They are so loud! I had imagined this sound quite differently. I wouldn’t know myself what it is, I must be informed what can be heard at the moment. I can hear frogs, wind, fire, steps on various surfaces and what have you in the countryside. Dogs barking, of course. It is a low sound, but I am aware of it. I know when someone is speaking. I listen to the sounds from far away.
Batteries: April 29th. P4 programme: 30th. The echo is terrible at first and it drowns all the speech, but I’ve noticed that if I talk to someone for a few minutes, I get used to it.
