We have been playing a game of pretend with sound for a very long time, and some of us have gotten real good at playing the game. Professionals in audio experiment with different sounds and textures that they are excited to introduce to the world, and when the opportunity presents itself, they jump on it. Without them playing the pretend game, everything would seem bland or mediocre at best. And the game is utilized throughout everything we experience in sound. So if you’re a sound professional or amateur, keep doing what you do. The game will always continue to grow. Let’s pretend together.
