Vine demonstrates the importance of sound

One of the most remarkable features about Vine is not the visual content, it’s the sound that gets laced in.

People overlook sound. But sound is the reason scary movies are scary. Sound creates tension and sets the mood.

I found myself unlocking the mute button on every Vine video I viewed this weekend. Audio is the one mystery we all want to know; it makes the images more real.

Music is not the only sound. Sound is ubiquitous and part of everything. Even the slightest silence is sound.

Sound completes the story. Without it, all we get are moving parts.
