D1 : By saying , “the marginal-the rejected-the repressed-is whatever the powerful have decided is of no use at the moment .”Mr Krukowski want to share with people the significance of the critic . And also suggest by there that music wasn’t appreciated through CDs anymore because everything is moved fast now and it is easier for people to download music instead of going to store and purchasing CDs.Tapes and CDs are less appreciated .

D3 : Being surprised by music is like hearing songs that we haven’t heard before but is not that we heard it and discovering it is not ever new because we listening g to song that had ever exist .According to the author , both are not the same and he mentions that surprise is not a helping thing . He went further asking question like : “did google want to surprise us when we’re searching for something? Did facebook want to surprise us when we look for a friend ? ”
D1: Noise is everything else that doesn’t interest us and signal is whatever is interested to us .volume alone cannot let us detect signal from noise.Everything around us is signal as long as it is not important to us but when we are in a crowded noise and somebody tells us things that we are interested to , so it become signal . It is really significant because these differences are important in terms of how our brain focuses on what we actually want to hear and less probably to disturbed by the surroundings noises .
D2 : In every noise there is a signal and base on the noise we can deduce signal but both are really related because when we turn the volume down we cannot hear the signal .
D3 : It Is related to all others episodes because it clearly gives some details and present good definition and explanation of “ways of hearing in general .
The human voice has played a significant role in composition throughout the history of music. Among important issues in the vocal repertoire are text intelligibility and the dichotomy between singing and speaking. Electronic means of music production and delivery have increased the potential for experimentation in this regard, resulting in an increased blurring of the distinction between music and language acting as driving force in many recent compositions. A sonic event deserves a unique location in this space if the variance of its characteristics is sufficiently small relative to the other pieces in consideration.This lets the listener feel the sonic progression, creating anticipation for the climax, which arrives at the chorus with the introduction of a sonically dominant bass line. It is even more effective at amping up the tension than adding elements because it creates a sonic void, making the listener crave for the return of those key elements.There is no doubt that Damon Krukowski is the right guy to be talking about music. He understands it at an intimate level where I either wished I could talk about it the same way, or that I could spend a couple hours picking his brain over a cup of coffee. Ways of Hearing is a curious book that doesn’t really have a thesis and is more of a work-in-progress. It discusses different aspects of music and noise. Really, it tries to distinguish between the two because even though this book is mostly about music, it’s also a lot about how we hear it, and as such has to deal with how it is that we hear noise in general.
For the past two years, I have been working in Manhattan. The Hustle and bustle of the city became part of my daily life. Ever since the lockdown started, I realized how much I missed all the noise that made the city alive to me. For example, The annoying horn of the taxis, sounds of the train moving, the train operator’s announcement, the buzzing noise of people talking around me. All those noises I never paid attention to because they were noise and time to time these noises annoyed me, I crave for them. I was unable to relive my city life. Then I found a video on YouTube called “Taste of New York.” The video maker captured every noise that makes New York alive. I started to listen to those noises and found a rhythm to it. The noises became sound to me. Even though the city isn’t fully open yet, but I had the taste of my city life through this video, and it also made me realized how much I love this city and its noises.

Music is one of the ways to connect with ourselves. To me, what I listen to always reflect what I feel. Music helps me to focus on my tasks. I like to listen to music when I’m walking, studying, or before going to sleep. When I’m exercising music, I hear to uplift my energy. I listen to ambient music while I’m studying or reading books. It gives a sense of calmness. It helps me to stay focus. The 1st device I used to listen to music was an MP4 player. I had only two songs downloaded, and I listened to them on repeat all the time. Over time the way we listen to music has changed. Nowadays, I use a YouTube music app to listen to music. The device we use to listen to music also changed. I have learned if you spend a good amount of money on the device your music experience will change drastically.
