How do you describe sounds?
I like to relate sounds to other senses. Nails on a chalkboard that makes your teeth tingle. Screeching tires on the asphalt makes your blood run cold. Our five senses are so intertwined that it’s impossible to experience one without the others. Sounds can set the entire mood of a scene, whether it’s raining outside or even a complete absence of sound. Silence is often more haunting and eerie than a blood curdling scream. Silence allows our minds to fill in the blanks and when our minds wander, we usually go to worse case scenarios. Like thinking someone is going to murder us while we’re in the shower kinda of paranoia.
