Sound is around us at all times. Close your eyes for just a few moments, and you can better appreciate the many different sounds present in the environment. Many of these sounds typically go unnoticed in our day-to-day existence. But, when we close our eyes for just a few minutes we begin to notice the barrage of electronic buzzing sounds from lights, ventilation systems, and other home or of‘ce appliances that incessantly bombard our senses. If you are fortunate enough to escape these modernday devices for a period of time, such as on a hike in the woods or a camping trip, then you may notice a new orchestra of the sounds of nature, which are often masked by the technological sounds of modern-day life.
