Professional disclosure: I received a sound-form in order to facilitate this review. As always, all opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.
When she says, “I love you, Dada,” as he walks out the door, I can see the lines in his face wrinkle into the widest smile a man could have. Every morning, the same events occur, and yet he never tires of them.
How could I preserve these days for him? And more pressing… What will I get him for Christmas?
After checking out Born of Sound, a young company on the West Coast, my answer was on the screen before me: A sound-form.
My very visual and musical husband would want for nothing else, than to see his baby girl’s love for him splashed across canvas- preserved in a timeless piece that would remind him on hard days and hold him captive on the best. A sound form is, as described on the website, the physical embodiment of your sound. A sound-form makes the audible, visible. The organic movement of sound, from your child’s first cry to the sweet purr of a classic car, is visually captured and yours to keep- or give.
For me, it was not even a question: I needed this for Dave. I was nervous about making such a gift, as I have NO experience with sound or recording myself, but the process was incredibly simple- and Jenelle, the best contact in the world, cleaned up my incredibly static and click-filled recording in less than 20 minutes! Check it out:
And just like that, this message will appear!
I received my confirmation email quickly, and then the coolest part thus far, the proof!!! I chose bronze on black, because I thought it was very striking. Dave (and Addie) love orange, and the bronze is beautiful- popping out with passion from the black canvas:
Dave has his masterpiece hanging in his office (done so with the white gloves that are sent with each unique piece!)… I love that our sound-form represents our family, Dave’s transition into fatherhood and all the things that are yet to come in our lives:
