‘How could I be angry with him?’
My ears were still ringing as I drove home from the concert. I’d been playing keyboard with a band for my friend’s saxophone recital. The venue was small and the band was large.
I’d been upset and a little angry when the drummer played much more loudly than I was expecting. I do have ear plugs, but I had taken one out so I could hear certain instruments better as we played together. Now, I couldn’t shake the feeling that maybe my hearing had been affected. My college’s school of music, where I study, had even recently been required to post charts in rehearsal spaces warning of the effects of extended exposure to certain sound levels. It was scary to me to think that something so important to making music could be damaged.
