I love the idea of a library of sounds.

And it made me think of what I would archive in my own library of sounds.

  1. the voices of my loved ones
  2. the hum of many bees buzzing
  3. the turning of book pages
  4. the water sprinkler
  5. fire crackling

 

These are just some that come to mind at the moment.

 

What sounds would you include in your library?
