Ommy saying "ow ow".

Kookaburras.

Silence of an empty house.

The James River & train whistles at night

Stephi_B 01-07-2008 03:17 PM

heartbeat of a beloved person
noise a tram makes when passing 'my' crossroad
music (which one depends on mood/setting/..) in the morning, at noon, in the afternoon, at night

the fire dying

(best question ever, tunesy :), hard to do it justice)

bells
trains
waves lapping
a key turning in a lock
thelonius-y/coltrane-y/miles-y/mingus-y sounds
a nudibranch sighing contentedly after consuming a meal of bluebottle jellyfish tentacles

truck honking far away in the night
rhythmic crickets
clicks and cuts
50 hertz bass drones
tibetan bowls
cat meowling to say hello

the sound of a pin dropping in space when there's no one
around to hear it and so on.......

ooh, and a tiny baby kitten's heartbeat

and something else, very tingly and sweet and slightly esoteric.

and the kop singing 'you'll never walk alone'

I don't think Craig Johnston is taking this thread seriously.

the best sound in the entire world: the sound of feet.

the clip-clop of shoes on pavement. the click-click of dressy heels on linoleum. the slappy-pat of bare feet on hardwood floors. the soft thumpity thump of running in cushy socks. back in the late 90s fell in love with the video game "crash bandicoot" based solely on their attentiveness to feet noises. miyazaki films have great feet noises.

in college i used to go out at night with a small tape recorder at my side, recording my own feet noises. sometimes they're the same from night to night. sometimes for unknown reasons they change. it's an ever-presence, and your perspective on it never changes. you can never walk away from your feet noises. they're as ever-present as the sound of your own breath.



(i tried to explain this to the spouse very early in our relationship. his response was, "you're going to have to marry me." now i love feet noises even more.)

^ gave me a happy, auntie. I'll have to listen for them in Spirited Away next time I watch it :D

camera shutters opening
the crunch of boots on freshly fallen snow
hearing your heartbeat in a pillow
the soft whushing of someone sleeping's breath
the pings and pongs of table tennis
the scratch of fine-tipped pens on paper
a whispered conversation through a wall
distant wind
the momentary silence after an amazing performance (well, that's lack of sound)
