While working through recent recordings I notice I grimace at louder sounds – I have a natural dislike for them… while quieter sounds draw me in & I engage with them and enjoy them more… So I was wondering if you are naturally drawn towards certain dynamics with sound?

As a musical parallel, I’m sure we all know of drummers who seem to operate at 200% volume at all times… while there are also plenty of subtle drummers who achieve their approach quietly and more sensitively…. Another genre of loud people are I presume those who make Reaktor patches that constantly slam 100% level… And are gun nuts also in the LOUDERER fan club?

(I dont need to be told that, of course we all engage with different dynamics, and for different reasons eg loud = danger, quiet = intimate etc… this question is just surveying people who actively work with sound, and whether you have observed a natural inclination in yourself towards certain dynamics)
