00:00 - 00:12: You are lying on the bed of Room 8.
A man walks to the door.
00:12 : He closes the door and locks it.
01:38 - 01:44: A fly circles the microphone.
03:26 : You can hear a child call out.
04:52 : You can hear another child.
06:17 - 06:50: A very nice bird. Does his song reverberate?
09:20 - 10:12: The sound of thunder on the freeway.
10:29 - 10:37: A bird persists in the desert.
13:01 : A sound in the hallway, like an un-locking.
16:36 - 16:44: "Mom! … Mom!"
19:00: : You can't hear it, but I'm in the swimming pool.
20:40 : A child. An airplane. An unveiling.
22:17 - 22:45: "Housekeeping. Coming in."
23:20 - 23:40: The dove outside the door.
30:23 : Coarse, hearty laughter.
31:30 - 31:46: I thought it was a helicopter.
32:12 - 32:32: A child learning new sounds.
33:01 - 35:00: A volley of birdsong, punctuated by the same child.
37:34 : In the hallway, a man seats himself at a table.
38:08 - 38:13: No birdsong, it seems, for several seconds.
39:04 : A man gets up from the table.
39:14 : A key in a lock
39:21 : The door to Room 8 opens.
39:29 - 39:42: The man crosses the room.
40:00 : End.
