The process of unpacking and cutting chicken breasts is captured. The recording begins with the sounds of water running caused by a person washing their hands before cutting the chicken. Sounds that follow are the sound of the wrapping paper being unwrapped and the sound of the knife cutting through the chicken breasts. The sound was recorded in the kitchen of a Furman University student at the off-campus housing.

I took a little part of everyday life and added it to the Sonic Dictionary. This is the sound of butter being freshly tossed onto a hot stove in a red skillet. Could you tell it was butter or does it sound like something else to you?
