did you set the .wav to repeat so that you could hear it a number of times 
in succession?

Well I did not use stereo headphones...but I tried it on a 6.1 surround
sound system...and just my laptop...which definitely has stereo.

Anyways, it might be me...maybe I'm just not atuned enough to hear the
distinctions.

Take care,
Sina

Hi Sina and all,

Did you set your sound player or media player to loop the sound? In the
beginning you will need to hear the soundscapes a number of times to =
hear
out all the visual details that they contain. Did you use stereo =
headphones?
Loudspeakers spoil the details.

The image is scanned from left to right, which pitch for height and =
loudness
for brightness. There is a curve going up and down and up again, and so =
does
its pitch: it sounds as a single tone with pitch going up and down and =
up
again. In the same image there are three little bright squares at the =
lower
left, which you hear on your left side at low pitch, with the leftmost =
two
at the same height, hence having the same pitch with a very brief pause =
in
between, and the third one a little higher, hence at somewhat higher =
pitch.
At the bottom right of the image there are two little squares, again at =
low
pitch but sounding on your right side. The rightmost square lies lowest,
hence giving lowest pitch. Finally, also at the right but at a high
position, there is a row of five little squares, all at the same height,
hence all with the same high pitch with brief interruptions separating =
them.
So in total there are three plus two plus five is ten little squares, =
and
the curve.

Best wishes,

Peter Meijer
