Soundscapes and Stories: How Documentaries, Interviews, and Podcasts Shape My Art

Sometimes I enjoy nature soundscapes, white noise, and occasionally, complete silence. Today I'd like to focus on some of the videos I enjoy listening to while creating artwork. Note that in some cases, I will have something on in the background and not really pay attention while other times I am fully tuned in and paying attention.

Engaging with educational programs presents a valuable opportunity for me to delve into subjects that pique my interest!
