What's Absent Is Present
An audiologist has confirmed that my hearing drops off precipitously above 6 kHz. Over 8 kHz it is gone. For this work, frequencies below 8 kHz were stripped from samples culled from various field recordings, mostly of a Labor Day parade in Pittsburgh. The remaining sonic content was brought down within my hearing range for a meandering stroll through what I usually canít hear.
