Sound is such an interesting medium yet I think most people brush it aside or forget about it altogether. From my new found experience with sound, I think it is an excellent source and/or detail in the art of storytelling. Sound can translate images and moods unattainable through only words and picture, and I loved the quote from one of our readings saying the better it is done the less we notice it. Sound can set the time, place, and tone before words or pictures are even shown. So much of our world we interpret through sound without even being consciously aware of it and being a writer with the ability to manipulate this tool provides endless opportunity and essentially power.
For my own personal creating, I think I now have a broader range for my imagination to incorporate not only how sound can work in a piece but improve upon it. I loved being able to incorporate sounds into an idea, and I think it’s something I would investigate further. I would like to see more examples of how other authors and artists are utilizing sound to their advantage. As a writer, incorporating sound in new and interesting ways could be a great outlet to have my work noticed among so many others. In class I wish we would have expanded more on music instead of the mixture of different sounds together. I think music as a whole is a huge discussion within itself and an evolving contributor to storytelling. In our ever-changing technological world I believe sound will become a bigger and bigger aspect of how we experience stories.
