Music to watch joss sticks by

I enjoy watching the smoke coil off a joss stick. Especially on sunny days like today. And this has to be one of the most fascinating sounds. It sounds ancient and futuristic at the same time. If the Aurora Borealis made a sound I imagine it would be something like this.

  1. Hi Artog,

    First I almost read "joystick" instead of joss sticks and became a bit perplexed. But then I got it and I agree with you that the sound is both futuristic and ancient. A great expression.

  2. Evening Jenny,

    It's such a weird sound - it's so hard to believe that it's produced by a wooden instrument.
