India is probably one the richest country in terms of sound experience. At 360 degrees, sounds fill the space. It’s challenging to identify the sources of those noises reaching constantly our ears. The mind look for the causes of such noise, get very busy and finally collapse. It’s much easier to just surrender, going deep into the experience of listening, putting the attention to tonality and frequency, stop analysing, just staying with the sound, in a safe acousmatic dimension.
