What are 'non-musical' sounds that you like?
clattering of heels
>inb4 rain rain rain
I fucking hate zipper sounds.
I also hate clattering change and people hitting forks and spoons against their teeth.
there's one that's more of a lot of sounds for me
just sitting in a crowded restaurant, a person can take in so much if they just listen
like the percusiveness of utensils, plates, and glasses acting against the droning of conversations all around them
it's comfy as fuck
Although I'm a pretty outdorrsy/nature sorta guy I tend to really like the sound of heavy machinery. Helichoppers, trains, shit like that. Also water scares me (well, ocean kinda water) so the sound of large boats and the weird surreal nature of sound underwater really plucks my goose.
And stuff like this - I expeditioned and camped several times over the summer trying to capture this. And then in one week I got like 3 amazing recordings. Link related:
Sorry for shiddy vocaroon quality. Pic is of some of my recording gear.
Rain on glass
The wind blowing cattails in a mulberry-coloured plain drenched in the evanescent hue of a sunset
Footsteps crunching on fallen leaves after a light rain
My father beating my mother
The static from the TV of the apartment next door
The silence of a night interrupted by the swish of cars in the distance
A slamming of a car door after my neighbors finish a night of drinking and the girlfriend leaving in a huff after catching her boyfriend sleeping with another woman, thus leading to the eventual crumbling of their relationship and her consequent relationships thereafter
Blowing into a bottle to make it whistle (is that musical?)
4 rotor engine idling or WOT
The wind whipping between me and my neighbor's house
Moving an iron skillet on an iron stove grate
That dentist drill
>The sound of flicking coins going into a fountain
>the sound a automatic sliding door makes when you walk into a store
>the sounds of school lockers
>the sound of a air conditioner
>white noise coming from a television
>dry leaves rustling
>shotgun blasts (the smell of the powder also plays a part)
>the echo an acoustic guitar makes when you set it down or just barely touch the strings
>and of course rain
bonus round: worst sounds
>timers of any kind
>2-cycle engines being over revved
>sticks scraping the roof of a vehicle
>the ringing of a hammer hitting a nail in really hard wood
Ground tumbling from a stampede or from an explosion.
a man in a room gambling :)
these are nice
I enjoy the sound of subway trains, idle chatter, crunching leaves, rain falling in metal containers, the hum and rattle of various electronics
I got to hear the Queen Mary II fog horn in Sydney Harbour once. Apparently it can be heard for like 50km+ or some shit. It was ridiculous. First of all the thing is so big it's a like a floating city. My apt was about 2-3km away from the harbour and the horn was loud as fuck and echoed for like 10 seconds.
I wish I had recorded it ;_;
In the past several months, I have come to appreciated the sound of machinery greatly. The sound of air conditioner hum is one of the most relaxing sounds in the world. In addition, I recently awoke to the sound of a jackhammer ringing out in a courtyard and thought that it was the most angelic sounds I had ever heard.
That's why I love this album.
I always admired the sound of a healthy penis slapping against tight female buttocks
I fucking hate the sound of knocking
Get over here bro. I don't like people visiting, so when i heard a knock growing up it'd make me feel nervous and uncomfortable. My mum said i'm weird for it.
i love clicking noises made by insects, theres a bug around here that does it all the time and its so awesome, it sounds so synthetic but organic at the same time
it might be this one maybe
I like when birds and crickets are out at night making noise and each bird/cricket is in there own groove while producing noise. The colliding grooves are really interesting and I really want to incorporate the same principal in my music.
