I’ve always loved the way that things sound, whether it’s a bus screeching to a halt, or it’s hissing pneumatic pumps, the birds flying overhead, cars whizzing by, and “all that jazz,” as my grandfather would say. My first phone was a Samsung flip phone that didn’t even have a camera, but it did have a voice memo app, and my friends have gotten pretty used to my crazy audio messages over the years. I’m able to convey so much more with my voice. Maya Angelou says that “Words mean more than what is sat down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.” For me, there are infinite possibilities of audio. I see text as a derivative of our instinct to make sound. Whenever I have an idea or message that’s too complicated to write, I always go for the audio note.
