Sounds in Time

By Zack Ellington

This soundscape explores changes in human sonic experiences through technology and language diversity. The presence of the farm sounds at the beginning, which are crossfaded with the sounds from modern-day suburban American community suggests that we are interconnected and subject to urbanization, agricultural roots remain. Sounds from nature, a train whistle, humans  conversing, the dial-up of the digital revolution, collectively these sounds represent an historiographical tapestry of change in the American South.
