‘The Shape of Sounds to Come’ Radio Documentary

Last year I was lucky enough to take part in a radio show about sound and space directed by Rachel Ní Chuinn and played on RTE radio. It was called ‘The Shape of Sounds to Come’ and you can listen to it by clicking here.

It features the renowned Alvin Lucier, as well as the music and thoughts of several other SARC staff and students on sound and how we interact with it. I give a brief explanation of some basics of acoustics. It’s really the contributions of others that contain the most interesting sections.

It’s definitely worth a listen. It doesn’t deal with Spatial Audio in the realm of technology. Instead, it’s more about how sound the sound around us everyday can influence in other ways, such as in architectural acoustics.
