Sound Bite: Fire

Earlier this year, I started collecting sounds. I don’t really know why – I didn’t have any plans to use them for any purpose. I captured things like rain or bird song, recorded with my phone, and just left them there in my voice memos. The only one I posted somewhere: a crackling fire.

This was the last fire we had in our old house before we moved. I can listen to this on end, get lost in the pops and cracks. What I really love about this sound is this: when we build a fire, we’ve committed to slowing down, staying put.

Prompt: “Insert Theme Music Here. Strike up the band – what was the soundtrack to your year? Was it the music you listened to the most? A certain song that kept reappearing, or worse…that you couldn’t get away from? Or maybe it wasn’t music at all – maybe a podcast, voice, performance, or significant sound played over-and-over. Whatever you heard: we’re all ears!”
