How do sounds inspire you? #EscuchaLaPalma

How do sounds inspire you?

or

Should I start asking, do sounds inspire you at all?

I have a tendency to forget how different we all can be sometimes. If you are lucky enough to hear something else than your own thoughts, it is highly possible that you are somehow inspired by sounds at all times.

But being able to perceive them doesn’t kill your other senses. And if you are like me, a very visual person, you probably start picturing images in your mind as soon as a song, noise, talk, any kind of sound really, takes your mind somewhere else.

That was my issue when I gave these sounds a little thought. I needed to find the images to fill that gap and be able to see the whole picture. My own.

But, given the fact that I happen to be in Berlin at the moment, I couldn’t really do justice to them. I tried, though, to make the most sense out of them. Closing my eyes and figuring out I was out in the wild, or in a coffee store, in the middle of an urban scene or surrounded by water. And so I created this short video.

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to find out where those clips were recorded watching it, but I would like to hear your opinion about what they suggest to you and which kind of images would better match them.

On the other hand, if I get lucky, I could easily be bringing you the proper shots straight from the island of La Palma, where all of them were collected. Because this article also represents a chance of winning a contest which prize is a trip there! 🙂

Do they take you back to places?
Are you curious about their source?
Wouldn’t you travel to find them?

I definitely would!
Because it makes little sense to match La Palma sounds with Berlin footage…

So here it is. My submission for this contest that could take me to La Palma in the Canary islands very soon. Fingers crossed!
