The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Sound Thinking

heartbeat“Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing?” the old question goes. Which one of your main senses would you feel like you could do without? It’s hard to imagine never being able to see a sunrise again, or experiencing the swaying of the tree tops in a light wind as the leaves leave their autumnal smatterings across the landscape. But, a world without sound would be at least as equally debilitating. We take more from sound than we truly realize. In this article Close Listening from Christopher Joyce in NPR, he muses how sound is important even as a diagnosis for the experienced physician. When we think on everything from the meditative singing bowl of Tibet, to the bells in school yards calling a change of classes, much of our lives are centred and structured by sound.
