Let’s make a paradise together

In the place where I grew up, sound has been our everyday companion. A sound that spreads through every street and every intersection. It announces weddings, births, and in between cheap tomatoes and the death of a neighbor. There is no escape from the sound of information, you can iron your shirt or spend time with your loved one, and it is always present! And what happens if the sqawkers instead of daily news start to blare out the sound of a launching space shuttle?
