A Feministing wedding…

Feministing won’t be posting today because our very own amazing feminista Lauryn is getting married!
We all wish her and her partner Brendan a wonderful day and a lifetime of happiness.
We also thank her for the free booze.

    Sound classifications obviously come from music. The main qualities cover pitch, the location of a note between high and low; timbre, the tone colour or quality of the tone that distinguishes it from other tones on the same pitch or volume; intensity, the loudness or magnitude; and duration, the length of a tone. Some have enriched the descriptive vocabulary further to portray subtler detail within a sound.24 Yet it is difficult to articulate the urban soundscape with these categories alone – its noises ranging from hum to hubbub, from din to honking, beeping and the whoosh and swoosh of cars.
    So we have a low whirr, brrrrrm, brrrhh, with changing volume from a rumble to a roar, but always a continuous soft echo of rubber on the road. The more continuous backdrop of motorized sound is interspersed with sporadic interruptions: a staccato screech, whine, beep or honk, the straining sounds of cars going uphill or changing gear, and blaring, thumping car stereos.
    The occasional unmuffled motorbike exhausts make your ears boil. Sometimes there is a siren or a car alarm, designed to irk and annoy with its high-pitch, unrelentingly piercing whining or wailing. When these sounds cumulate, they crescendo to a roar. There is often an aeroplane above, rumbling with a gravelly roar, and on occasion it rasps with a gruffness as it flies directly overhead.
