Just as Landscapes... and all visual images are to the eyes... Soundscapes and sound images are to the ears. As we can easily recognize things around us that we see in our physical environment through our sense of vision... we can actually recognize through our ears and the sense of hearing the images, shapes, directions and more of the Audio World... All music... it's notes and harmonies... and the way they inter-react with each other are just like images that we experience in vision. They have shape and form height, depth and width and a multitude of other characteristics that enhance or emphasize what we see. These characteristics just like light and shadow... and placement in a surrounding are just as clear to the trained ear as to the eye. The primary difference being that we have been introduced to thousands of visual images and navigating around them from almost the moment we were born... where as with the audio imagery they are usually not quite as clear because we haven't been exposed to them anywhere nearly as much, and therefore do not hear them as distinctly and clearly as those in our predominantly visible world.
In My Soundscape Recording Series I have listened to the Shapes and Forms of the multitude of musical sounds at each passing moment along the "Audio Highway", and just like driving down a road... or perhaps an interstate highway... I hear within the moment to moment blends of sounds many alternatives, new directions and exits you might say that open up to paths I might have never been on before. Soundscapes are like looking, seeing with the ears where the music can lead you, and what new adventures one can take as if on a journey, like an explorer... all you need to do is "Follow The Sound"...
