Silence World

Background sound audio map like deep space photos

This would be a virtual audio world like Aporee.org/maps, except it would be only extremely high precision recordings of "silence". So people all over the world could find extremely quiet places, record the background and then analyze it like they analyze deep space photos, except that I guess you could correlate it with regular recordings of the real world. But somehow I think there would be something especially interesting about the background sounds that make up the sound setting in the quietest places on earth. Some combination of what gets through and the interaction of the listener.

Weird sounds of animals in the silence of nature at the Tel Aviv botanic park https://www.youtube...watch?v=0ChvjyrRnxM
Aside from these animals all that can be heard is the natural roar of nearby highway [pashute, Aug 10 2015]

       So handy when the mic has a little "on/off" switch, don't you find?

       Any remote area where snow is falling heavily, under wind- less conditions, is my candidate for the quietest place on Earth.

       Have you ever tried mediating while The Simpsons are screaming in the other room? Grrrr...husbands. It's not easy, let me just say. Not at all. I want to move to the quietest place on Earth and never come back. I'd be good with that.

       That's terrible. What you are trying to do is one of the most important things a human being can do, and your husband ought to respect and honour that. Who are you mediating between?

       OOPPppps, missed a "t'. Please excue me .

       I thought this was going to be a theme park idea - I'd quite like to visit the Silence World theme park.

       Haha, bliss, I actually read it as 'meditating', and only realized the typo and altered meaning afterward, to much humorous effect. Itchy and Scratchy partners in inner calm do not make.   

       [+] for the deep concept. 4'33" and all that. Couldn't we do this with all the senses? The least scented place on earth, the, um, least tactile... -feeling... place on earth, the place with the least taste (present company excluded). We just need to invent the way to record and playback the other formats - a sensory deprivation tank comes to mind for the lack of touch.
