Was That Me?

“What the…” I said to myself, as a hideously loud and protracted feedback squeal interrupted my otherwise peaceful ingestion of a glazed apricot Danish pastry at work yesterday morning. I hadn’t had such a public feedback fright since I’d inadvertently leant the side of my hearing aided head against a pillar in the studio, in a moment of weakness during a very long critique session.

“DON’T WORRY MOIRA, IT’S NOT YOUR HEARING AIDS”, shouted my concerned colleague from behind a computer on the other side of the office, “I’M JUST CHECKING OUT FRANKIE’S FINAL SOUND PIECE…IT’S BASED ON AUDIO FEEDBACK.”

“It’ll never catch on”, I replied sagely, putting sticky hearing aids back in my ears with glazed apricot fingers, and wondering what other sonic delights await me during the marking of this year’s graduate work.

    When I was singing in my cathedral last week, I could hear a terrible whistling. I wondered if it was me or whether it was the member of clergy walking in front of me during the procession with his hearing aid! I still don’t know! 🙂
