Do people like the sound of an airplane in the distance? Isn't there something comforting about that sound? Same with the sound of a far-off train. It's not really ambient, but maybe it's like beta waves that are produced by the sound of surf and waves crashing on the beach. Maybe the sound of the airplane is like is what drove Kamikaze pilots looking to hear the sound of the eternal NOW. After a while it's not about physics but what things are implied by physics -- the visible points to the invisible. Though we lose parts of our hearing -- certain higher frequencies with age -- we still make the right connections, and still make the right leaps in our thinking experience. The metaphysics of the airplane says the sound is a transportation device that also transports our soul. The sound is the carrier, the platform, and it could be argued this is like music. Music transports us too. The stillness and sound of rain are also like that -- remembrance of something else.
Expect a new airplane CD? The far-off sound of something. The remembrance of something else.
