It is remarkable to not hear any sound, and this is what I experienced in the desert! The sand absorbs any reverberation and any sound is dampened. It was not all quiet though! At times I could hear distant motorbikes. And in the morning really sparse birds around the few trees in here. The most notable sound comes from “wind”! It creates this noise from the motion of grains of sands but also the palms if there any trees here. A truly great soundscape experience!
