Hum, 189

189

This is from a dream I had. My friend Granger, listening to a bagpipe player on the banks of the Ohio River. In the dream there was this low hum happening, overwhelming the whole scene. The human range of hearing is about 20-20,000hz. Your average equalizer is adjustable between around 60-16,000hz, usually with 500hz being the midpoint. I would guess the frequency to be about 189hz, intuitively. Hence, Hum,189.
I have looked into dream interpretation, the symbolism of rivers, bagpipes, etc. I cannot make heads or tails of it. It was pretty powerful, at any rate, and intriguing enough for me to want to recreate the scene. So there you go.

    Do the human figures have any relevancy or connection to anyone you know? Or were these just figures you made up?
