Tinnitus: a sketch of noise

Tattoo buzz white noise scribbled onto puretone whistling – harmonics, reminiscent of turbines and trains in tunnels. The bouquet is ultrasound clang; pebbles tied into the continuum of the sea – roaring to form a cone that projects from my ear. The unceasing froth is nailed into my auditory nerve – subsonics polished into silver strike.

Numb.

    Great stuff, it’s like an unfurling of sounds – so many and so rich! Love the line: “scribbled onto puretone whistling”. 🙂
