I tried.

Editor's note:  this entry was originally published by Snyder on a now defunct "Silence Project" blog.  I post it here for archival purposes.

Here are two failed attempts.

Bah, car ruined it.

Bah, Birds.

It is hard to escape noise.

So I gave up for today, I'll try again later.


As long as I've given up for the day, here is some of tonight's rain.

That is all.


  1. Excellent, Snyder. The rain one is particularly nice. Now as far as silence goes--I think that is in the ear of the beholder. In any case, it is difficult to record silence and that is my point. But are birds and rain better than a car? I think so.

  2. I listened to "rain" again, Snyder--I dig the wind chimes. Perhaps we could expand "silence" to being about attempts to record without man-made sounds interfering?

  3. Thats a good idea. I'm all for it. I'll keep an ear out.
