I laid awake almost all night last night, not thinking about Sound & Vision, but something was bothering me…

Yesterday, I claimed that sound falls on the electromagnetic spectrum… Dumb@55.

Sound, in and of itself, while a wave, to be sure, is of a completely different order than light.

Light just moves, passes through all manner of vacuums and thin materials, and electromagnetism passes through pretty much everything.

Sound, on the other hand, does not exist in a vacuum, as it requires a medium. In fact, I might make the claim that there is no such thing as sound qua sound, but only the vibration of media.*

If I was a slightly different person, I would go back and edit yesterday’s post. But I’m not a different person, I’m always and only James, and I like to be wrong, mistaken, incorrect, because then I can learn something, be reminded of something, be shown another way.

So groovy…

Please pardon the out-of-focus droplet… If you’re really bothered by it, think of it as depicting the failure of this line of inquiry into Sound & Vision.

Rest assured that I’ll continue to “wonder sometimes, about Sound & Vision.”

D7000. Nikon 75-150mm f/3.5 Zomb-E Series. ISO100, 1/250th, f/11. SB-700, hard camera left, zoomed to 35mm, and at 1/4, fired via a pair of Cactus V5 triggers. Moderate processing in Aperture.

*Of course, I’m likely quite wrong about this too… but I think I’m closer.
