Sound waves exist as variations of pressure in a medium such as air. They are created by the vibration of an object, which causes the air surrounding it to vibrate. The vibrating air then causes the human eardrum to vibrate, which the brain interprets as sound.
Sound waves travel through air in much the same way as water waves travel through water. In fact, since water waves are easy to see and understand, they are often used as an analogy to illustrate how sound waves behave.
Now here’s the thing: All audio work is about manipulating sound waves. The end result of your work is this series of high and low pressure zones. That’s why it’s so important to understand how they work – they are the “material” of your art.
