On the ski lift, there are speakers on every other pylon, and the differences in the timings between each speaker  create this amazing multi-tap echo. There is some wind noise and the rumbling of the chair as we pass every pylon. The next day, the weather was not so good and the lift was closed for the remainder of my time there. Usually, the speakers play RnB music.

You can get a sense of distance and space by listening to the speakers. The sense of movement is apparent from  the hum of the cable overhead, the occasional rumbling at each pylon, and the  loudspeakers’ sound passing from  in front to  behind the chairlift I was sitting on.

Sometimes, the best things are on the other side.

在滑雪纜車上,每隔一個塔架上就有一個揚聲器,揚聲器之間的時間差創造了這種精彩的多聲道迴音。當我們經過每個塔架時都有一些風聲和椅子的隆隆聲。第二天的天氣不太好,而往後的時間纜車都關閉了。揚聲器通常都在播RnB音樂。

你可以通過聆聽揚聲器的聲音感知距離和空間。頭上的纜索的嗡嗡聲,每個塔架偶爾發出的隆隆聲,在繞過位於我所坐的纜車前面及後面的揚聲器之時,都使我清楚地感知自己的移動。

有時,最好的東西在另一邊。
