For 2014 I've decided to create or record at least one sound every day that is meaningful (at least to me) for that specific day.
The first sound of the year is also the last time that my wife and I will be hearing this particular sound and that's the fireworks for New Years' that we've watched for 3 years now from our balcony. My wife has moved all the way from Australia to Germany so we could be together and she *loves* the fireworks since in Australia it's illegal to fire off your own. As to why this is the last time we hear this sound, that is because in a few weeks we'll be moving out to a new place in a bigger and more importantly more quiet house with a brand new studio and as much as we are excited about the move we're also a bit sentimental about this place as this is where we started our life together.
P.S.: The sentimentality passes quickly when we hear (and we always do) our obnoxiously loud neighbors, the constant fire and police sirens and non stop traffic outside our bedroom window!
