In Case of Emergency Your Headphones Can Be Used as a Flotation Device

If living under a pandemic has taught us anything it’s that there’s an art to being alone. Whether you’re living on your own and longing to forge a human connection, or are amongst people you love but would better serve if allowed a choice moment of solace, headphones represent a celebration of a solitary experience. They allow us to discreetly explore other worlds – like virtual reality for those who prefer to let their souls do the heavy lifting. In that spirit, this selection is intended to be an immersive experience with meditative music and selected sound bytes woven together to exemplify the important distinction between being alone and being lonely.
