I think that the absence of sound is one of the most incredible things in the world. No more vividly is the concept of “nothingness” illustrated than in total silence. You feel like you could be the last human being on earth. If you add a sound, just a small one, it changes everything and maybe even makes the silence below it that much more vivid. If you have a piano in your house, just sit in front of it in silence for a while, and then push any one key, just once. It’s that that fascinates me.
