Sound is a mechanical vibration that travels through any matter as a waveform. Most of the time we think about sound moving through air, but it can travel through any matter. Basically, something pushes the particles in the air and that causes them to bump into each other in a chain reaction. This allows the energy of the sound wave to travel while the air itself only move a little bit.
