    in good accordance with the human hearing system. In 1946, the WHO (World Health Organization) was created. The duty of this Organization was, for the people around the globe, to achieve a fairly ideal level of physical, psychological, and social health.

Now the noise of gum has bothered me since like middle school, and I know it bothers quite a few of people, but it’s just…

    In 2012 a study out of Newcastle University revisited the land of gross noises and subjected 16 people to 74 different sounds from running water to the scrape of knives on glass, asking them to rank them on a scale from pleasant to excruciating. [pic: PD] Once again, the worst of the sounds fell in that bad-Hertz sweet spot, but more interesting than how the offensive sounds ranked was what they did to the peoples’ brains. With the help of an MRI machine, researchers kept tabs on which brain…

    the familiar and the ordinary strange again--as the Russian formalists used to put it, by "alienating" the reader from the tyranny of the compellingly familiar. It offers alternative worlds that put the actual one in a new light.” (Bruner, pg. 12) Good sound design, through surprise, expectation, and silence serves well the purpose of vanquishing, with fiction, the compellingly familiar tyrant of quotidian reality. Everyone loves a good bang. Thus, with a good sound design, the unexpected…

    Silence, after a hard day of school, all I wanted was to relax to the ballads of 50 cent, and I got silence. The bass must have shifted an exposed wire and shorted the amplifier, I fixed this a few times before that it almost became routine, but it was not a shorted wire. Troubleshoot, no solution, what could it be? My set up was almost perfect, lacking solely in achievable decibels. Second hand children science encyclopedias along with Questions and Answers books got me this far and for a…

    I awoke quickly in the pitch black bedroom from a sound down the hall, my best friend laying beside me still in a deep sleep. As I lay still, (deathly still, deathly quiet, lifeless) I think to my self, “ am I hearing things, have I gone crazy?” (delirious, insane) I hear the noise coming from down the hall, I jump up and cautiously walk toward the bedroom door, the slightest light shining off from my alarm clock is glaring threw the dark (Lightless) bedroom.

    Before embarking on my soundwalk, I had a few basic expectations of sounds I would encounter, mostly based on prior memories of wandering MIT’s campus. I knew what the soft, low murmurs should sound like when traversing the corridors. I knew to expect the clip-clop of hard stepping walkers in the silent tunnels, and the high pitched buzzing and whining of electrical components overhead. Outside, the wind would make soft, mid pitched whuuu and shhh noises, which would serve as background for…
