Every time I say "the sound of music" I begin to sing my favorite things parody in my head. I even made a video of that song. It's kind of awful, but I feel obligated to link to it for full disclosure of my hownottoblog failure. Anyway, here's Hawk Nelson!
I apologize for the awful quality. They wouldn't let me take video, and the AwakeningFest bands in the back were makin' a heaven-uva lotta noise.
But again we see the relationality sound holds for people in the "my wife saying she loves me" answer, and the career/life orientation in "music." The funny thing is, in the years of asking this question, no one has ever said "music" as the MIP--except musicians.
I love, too, how everyone interprets the question differently. Perhaps this is a sign of a bad interview in normal reporting, but for an art project like this, which is meant to showcase humanity (as is all art), I think it's beautiful. Mr. Benner answered "what is the most important sound to me," I think Mr. Dunn answered "what is the most influential sound in the world," and Mr. Biro answered "what is the perfect sound." I love how this question not only shows what sounds are important, but how different people define important!
How do you define important? And have you told me yet what you think is the most important sound?
