Sonogram of an apartment building

May 6, 2009

Carioca apartment, Japanese walls, the neighbor´s keys jangling in the keyhole (she must be drinking again, it´s taking so long to open the door), a mother yelling at her child (´open your mouth!´), a drill, a kettle boiling, the hysteric television announcement of football highlights and car accidents, the noise of sexual exchange, American pop song, audible porn videos, a woman´s voice in orgasm, sighs, a mother yelling at her child (´shut your mouth!´), the ejaculatory screams of a game show host, farts, the shrill honk of a forced laugh, a child saying ´aaaaaaah,´ the vibrato-less hum of a television being turned on, whispers into a pillow, the elevator grunting, a child shouting at his mother (´nooooo!´), profanity shouted into a telephone, the rude blare of American English, sing-song Portuguese, the violin strings of a detective movie soundtrack, voices entertaining the company, the maudlin overture to a dubbed foreign movie, a male voice laughing softy, a female voice laughing loudly, ultrasonic waves ad perpetuam, ceaseless labor of sound, circus cacophony. The closer you listen the louder it becomes.
