The World According to Sound

 sam-interviewing-mud-pots

Radio producers Chris Hoff and Sam Harnett have gathered sounds from all over the world for their show on NPR. Now they are going to set up a ring of speakers, hand out sleep shades, turn off the lights, and surround you with sound. You will hear bridges and ants and the gurgle of mud pots. The sounds will transport you inside another person’s head and back in time a hundred years to the streets of Berlin. There will be a musical performance by a washing machine, a world class tennis match, and a disturbing howl Marco Polo heard centuries ago while crossing the Gobi Desert. For one hour you will be deprived of sight and encouraged to rethink the world through your ears.
