unknown, June 1883 in the magazine The Chautauquan
If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears, does it make a sound?
This should a philosophical question that kept philosophers busy for generations. I think:
The sound that splits into Attack, Sustain, Release does not matter if someone hears it, that it fits completely in the environment syncron.
The environment does not really care about this, but it supports the attack, sustain and release in modulation and effect.
But the most beautiful working situations a had when I lived in Flor de Ouro, we had in this left over community Internet via satellite. I was searching somewhere, next to router a silent place in this nature and when I was in a really deep working space I was one with the sounds from the surrounding, I was the sound. And this sound from the forest is so perfect, so peaceful and complete synchron. In the Background was the sound of a close Waterfall from the Rio Prato. But soon I realised, that there is different Modulation and effect from the sound, and -it’s obvious- that the sound is there even when I’m not there.
