The fourth edition of Sound-Bites is in the works. If you’re new to this, it’s a community project about listening.
Each issue centers around a question asking people to listen to the sounds around them. Past issues focused on love, mountains, and home. This issue is about the dark!
Submitted answers will be compiled in a zine (about 12-15 pages) that gets distributed in coffee shops, libraries, book stores, mailboxes, and the occasional rest stop bathroom.
Since the solstice passed this week, and the next few months are looking bleak, as per usual for this time of year, I’m thinking about the dark. It’s permeating. These are the days the light isn’t reaching us in quite the way it used to.
There’s no sense resting on our laurels just because our corneas are a bit deprived! Let’s keep listening.
What are you hearing when the lights go down? What do you find on your way to the metro when the temperature’s dropped down to below twenty? What’s calling from outside your window, or under your bed?
Lucky for us, one thing we can rely on in this crazy world is that the sun’ll be back soon enough.
