Noise Challenge 9
Saturday afternoon. In all the other noise challenges I thought a lot about meaning, whereas with this one I just listened to everything around me without worrying about what it meant. I was struck by the noise that is almost constant for all 24 hours of the day and night during Simmer Dim, Shetlanders’ way of describing the white nights of summer. It is an energised, highly charged time of year, with lots of activity to go with all the light. It’s both quiet and wild, a mix of nature and man.
