I too struggle to place my earliest sound memories. Like Doug suggested, I believe that my earliest memories are tied to visual makers. I am not sure whether this is because it is my preferred learning style or if it is because of the mediums that we typically use to capture and document our lives. I wonder how many of my early visual memories are actually 1st person accounts and how many are from memories of photographs I’ve seen in albums. I wonder too if home videos have a similar impact on my earliest sound memories?
Most of my strongest early sound memories are often tied to events like birthday parties starting or TV shows starting. What I remember most in both situations is the feeling of happiness that I felt at the sounds of extended family arriving at my house or the sounds of the TV theme song starting. Although the tonal qualities of theses sounds were very different, the feeling that I got when I heard is what I believe makes them stay in my mind.Michael JameerGuest
@Rebecca – I like your idea of footsteps being one of our earliest sound memories.
I remember hearing the front door open and the sound of someone getting from work as a child. I could always tell if it was my Mom or Dad!Joseliane AraújoGuestJoselaine AraújoGuest
Esse áudio é um registro marcante da minha casa desde a infância. Som de ventilador, relógio, torneira, cachorros, pássaros e principalmente, as orações matinais da minha mãe descreve algo forte na minha vida desde sempre. O som que desapareceu neste tempo que vivemos foi do rádio ligado, bem baixinho na estação em AM. Isso foi substituído pelos sons de mensagens do Whatsapp que ditam as pautas da sua rotina matinal (trabalhos).
