Sound reveals some other sides of things. Curious about the material body of something, we are used to knock or shake, and listen for a clue. This gives a direct impression of something close by but inaccessible, an intimate access to hidden properties. At the same time, a sound may be a distant attempt to communicate - someone knocking on the door, or the neighbour knocking on the ceiling. One may have to listen for a while until one can tell such a sign from the sound of someone driving a nail into the wall, and it may simply impossible to tell whether a door was slammed accidentally or in anger.
