How Hearing Shapes Your Fortune

A Tokyo temple field recording by Seth S. Horowitz

20131030-tokyotemple

Rhode Island–based Seth S. Horowitz, author of The Universal Sense: How Hearing Shapes the Mind, is currently taking a busman’s holiday in Japan, recording sounds as he travels. He’s posted the first of these, taken at the Senso-ji Temple in the Asakusa district of Tokyo.

Writes Horowitz of the source event:

A 100 yen coin is deposited, a metal box full of joss sticks is shaken until a numbered stick falls out. The fortunee then opens a wooden drawer corresponding to that number to obtain their fortune.
