Can't Get There From Here

It is while out walking in the woods that he notices the silence; a silence missing from his everyday life where the hum of all the appliances, apps and passing traffic constitute the aural confines of his home.
He is overcome with a need to share this experience so he records it on his phone: 10 seconds of silence.
He txts it home.
On his arrival home his wife asks him:
“What was that thing you sent me?”
“It’s a recording I made in the woods” he says
“didn’t work… I couldn’t hear anything”
