What do you hear, right now? Outside? Has your soundscape changed these past few weeks?
I just had this moment on the balcony... I stepped out there because it's a beautiful warm spring night, and up on the fourth floor at this time of year, the sun often warms the evening air further and it just feels good after a long winter to get outside again.
Anyways I was out there, and it struck me just how quiet the city had become. Here at 6PM on a Friday night, and I'm downtown near to the pubs and restaurants and places of activity... and there was barely a sound. The only one thing I could hear was the rattle of some rickety old air conditioning unit on a roof of a nearby building, and the quiet echo of someone's voice coming from somewhere further yet. That's it. The faintest hint of a few cars good be heard in the distance, but they were not more than a quiet wisp. Downtown.... on a Friday night at 6PM.
I sent a text describing that moment to a few of you, and you each responded so differently to that moment. And so I would really love to hear; How has your soundscape changed? Maybe it is the same? Maybe the people around you are behaving in different ways? Different times?
