Has anyone of you tried to venture into the study of sound? How would the world be without it? It is impossible to imagine this. It feels our days with excitement and meaning. How is sound useful to you?

Dude, that's what this whole website is about.

What exactly are you trying to learn in this thread?

This website is frequented by people that want the most believable illusion of "being there" from recorded music and sounds through their stereo systems and home theaters.

We study what traits are most important for the reproduced sound to be pleasant, accurate and believable.

I understand the deaf develop an enhanced sense of touch. To feel sound. It's hard to imagine what of the senses would be the most difficult to loose. But those that have seem to compensate for it remarkably. My goal in a music system was always to obtain a soundscape that emoted a realistic feel and intellectually by doing a bit of diy to obtain that end.

The best way to answer this question, I think, is to imagine waking up and no one hears anything. From verbalizing, to singing, to strumming a guitar to a tree falling in the woods to a train coming down the tracks. Imagine that, and then think: How important is THIS? How important is the lack of sound.

Remember, thinking doesn't require sound.

Yeah, sound is important but some people need to learn how to "even it out" so to speak.

Noise pollution is a thing in the big cities, and one reason people like to get away from it all and go camping and such on the weekends is to get away from the noise.

In moderation it's good. Let's you know the clock is still ticking and things are alive.

Remember that old question: "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

The correct answer of course is yes, because two objects come together with enough force to create a sound from that "meeting".

The importance of sound I believe can only be registered when there is none anymore. Only then will you truly realize how important it is.

I can't imagine having to live in that kind of world. For sure, that will be one less way of learning things since you'll be relying on your eyes most of the time. The entertainment industry will be limited, considering that even so-called silent films have sounds.
