Hearing Tests Revisited

by Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo

Playing Papa Sangre has made me think a lot about my hearing and the hearing tests I used to take as a child through which I would raise my hand when I heard a particular frequency. I stumbled on this hearing test online, which I hope to share with the class. I could hear a rumbling at 20 HZ but could not make out a real note until about 40 HZ. My ears started to hurt and I started getting dizzy around 70 Hz so I had to start turning down the volume.
