Most sounds you hear, from the whisper of the wind to the wail of a siren, are simply moving air. When a noise is made it causes the air to vibrate, and these vibrations, also known as sound waves, carry the sound to your ears. I’m curious to know what sounds you like best. Below are a few of my favorites.
