    Select an object from your environment that has resonant properties that is large enough that you can place your iphone inside of it.

    If possible move this object in the loudest situation you can find.  Place your I phone into it and record how the resonances of this object filter the surrounding ambient sounds. If you blue tooth earbuds that record sound, you can also use these as your microphones.
  • Record your voice speaking naturally (with someone); reading an academic paper; sounding / chanting non-verbal. Listen carefully and write (blog) about it -- analyze the difference
  • Add your breath to the growing BREATH LIBRARY -- send vibrations of peace to the war zone nearby.
