I just watched this video about noiseless props in movies and TV. I thought it was interesting, and perhaps you will too. We catters pay a lot of attention to sound.

who knew?

Yes interesting. Admit I thought the sound was added after eg filming in a noisy street with no sound recorded.
BBC could use noiseless musicians to interrupt radio programmes?

Not actually 'noiseless', but definitely quieter.
I assume that if they were totally 'noiseless' it would make it harder (as with the pool balls) to know exactly when to replace the sound of collisions with the correct sound effects.

It's nice to hear that other people find ordinary noises too loud. I've often been seriously bothered by restaurant people clattering dishes. It can be like a blow inside my head.

Recently I read a book about a family with an autistic daughter. Autistic people often have very sensitive hearing. One day the father upset her greatly by rumpling up a grocery bag to start a fire in the fireplace. In fact, he felt bad all the time because his daughter kept aloof from him.

I wanted to tell him, "You hurt her with that noise. She thinks you know how much it hurts, and she thinks you did it on purpose. She's six. You're an adult, and she thinks you understand everything."

"Tell her you're sorry, tell her you love her, and for heaven's sake stop being so noisy."

It sure doesn't help that so many people are deafening themselves with loud music on earphones. They don't hear the loudness their children hear.

I use earphones every day, and I’m very careful with the volume level. A tick too high, it hurts.

Maybe that’s why I still have pretty good hearing at almost 67, despite all the loud pubs and rock concerts in my past.

I've been careful with my ears most of my life, and advised others to do the same. I also have a problem with the really loud alarms mandated so that those who are hard of hearing get the emergency sounds. I've been driven almost to violence when these were tested in my vicinity with no warning.

I find I need to retreat indoors with my hands over my ears when the ice cream van visits our road, playing a mangled, distorted, and painfully loud version of Greensleeves.

That's an interesting video, thank you leeneia!

Our world has become much too noisy.

I agree. I carry earplugs (the soft, waxy kind) in my purse. I use them on airplane flights and subways. I've learned that on long flights I can listen to music right through the earplugs. It needs to be high-pitched music, though, such as flute, violin, soprano.

You haven't heard anything insipid till you've heard a Beethoven symphony with all the bass blocked out. We experienced something similar in the car - ragtime piano with the bass line drowned out by car noise. It's just not the same.
