Like a landscape, a soundscape is composed of many elements. A singular sound can also be made up of many parts.
Within the surrounding soundscape, try to hear and isolate different sonic layers.
Try to listen to sounds as textures and tones, ignoring their source of origin.
Sounds might be bright, humming, whirring, subtle, intense or squeaky.
Some sounds contain a distinctive tone or a specific rhythm, whereas others are more complex.
Listen for sounds that are high or low pitched, fleeting or persistent. Listen deeply into a soundscape to hear individual components. Spend time with your awareness.How might you describe these sounds to others?
