“Moon Graffiti” Reflection

Wow, I could imagine all of this in my head while listening to “Moon Graffiti.” Probably because I have seen space movies like Interstellar and it helps me imagine the setting more clearly. Like Abumrad mentioned in his videos, the beauty of audio is all about imagining what is happening. Using your imagination brings so much freedom- just like when reading a book, we get to picture everything compared to film, where we don’t get to imagine as much. I was very intrigued while listening to this… and was able to picture what was going on by the communication between Aldrin and Armstrong. The communication makes it so real, especially when one tells the other to “go first to get off the space craft” and “take my camera” to “get pictures of the crash.” I really felt like I was there, although I would never want to be! I was also picturing what it sounded like up there without talking… is it quiet? I feel like it might be really peaceful on the Moon… maybe? But also really lonely and scary. They described the surface of the moon as loose and sandy and when they kick the dust it was described as a ripple effect. One of them also takes a photo and the camera click sound makes it more real. This was also very eerie to listen to, especially with them saying they have two hours left to live and asking how many people they think will be buried up here. They were so chill about that… but I guess what else are you supposed to do when you’re stuck on the moon?
