City Soundscapes

Sounds, part one.

In the first part of the series on sounds, we stroll the urban soundscapes of cities. From noise to auditory pleasure, from cacophony to a balm for the ears. Which sounds disturb us most and why, what are pleasant sound vibrations like, how do we create our own sonic images? What happens in our listening brain, when can sounds and music be therapeutic, and when can noise be harmful to our health?

Guests: neurologist dr. Sandra Morović, composer and sound artist Colin Black, psychiatrist dr. Arijan Turčin, anthropologist dr. Pina Sadar
