The Silent Series - Oscar Tells it All

Another addition to the fabulous CD collection of “Things we’d like to hear”.  Featuring the silent sounds of historical events, famous speeches, acoustical phenomenon and more. Digitally mastered to provide the purest audio experience never heard before and never to be heard again.

You are invited to post your own interpretation of the sounds you hear inspired by the CD tittles and their images.

Oh, the stories you could tell to us, the real truth about the stars,
From your privileged vantage point on the mantels of their bars.
Of the scenes you could describe, depicting fragile lives in jars;
The wounding trauma and the drama of their self inflicting scars.
In spite of all the talent they possess, they have egos like cigars,
Burning brightly on the end, while collecting poisonous tars.

They’re cast as super heros but their characters are flawed.
Projected onto giant screens, as pure with no facade,
We fail to see their human side and the audience is awed.
To capture our attention, whenIn the end we do applaud,
They’re Awarded golden idols that they worship like a god.
An industry that pretends to be, but is nothing but a fraud.
