sounds we make

00:00 / 00:08

a cracked knuckle / a body shifting in a chair

     Bodies are loud. Hearts thumping, stomachs squishing, necks popping, knees creaking, spit smacking, nails clacking, nostrils whistling, teeth grinding. And so, we make sound. We also make other things make sound by putting them into motion; we manipulate collision, whisk the whisk, switch the switch. 


There are sounds we make

There are sounds that we make other things make

There are sounds made by things invented by us

There are sounds made by things that predate us

There are sounds made but never heard

There are sounds never made
