Long before the written word, people used sound to tell their stories. They bragged about their triumphs, impressed their competitors, sold their goods, taught their children, described the wonders they had seen and the emotions they felt. They did this with only the tenor of their voices and the sounds they could create. Music - singing, drumming, the whistle of reeds - must have developed as a way to enhance the art of storytelling. An art we now call data exchange.
People have not lost their responsiveness to sound. It's hardwired into us. The song we wore out on the seventh-grade jukebox can make us smell burgers and fries when we hear it on the radio. This automatic, physiological response is why sound design remains so important to the story-telling of the 21st century.
Our stories today are still about winning and losing, beating the competition, teaching and describing natural wonders. We've come a long way from banging on a stretched animal skin to get the message across. But sound is still central.
