The World According to Sound

Friday April 14 2017 • 6:30pm - 7:45pm ET
In-person event


There’s a lot of talking on the radio. People love to yammer. The World According to Sound is a 90-second radio show with as little talking as possible. Every episode brings you one sound that tells a story. 

Join us for a live event hosted by The World According to Sound creators Chris Hoff and Sam Harnett, who promise to take you on an hour-long jaunt through sound and space. Auditory hallucinations, cityscapes of bygone eras — these are the sonic oddities you might experience (or just truly pay attention to) for the very first time. Think of people sitting in a dark room equipped with sleep shades as they listen to a selection of choreographed sounds coming from eight world-class speakers placed throughout the room. 

With the lights off and the room awash in sound, we hope to reawaken our relationship to life as perceived with our ears and that you’ll walk away from the event thinking about audio in a whole new way. 

If it all sounds a little curious or experimental, we’ve got you covered: come straight from work for a beer (or wine) and let your mind do a little wondering and wandering. It might just be the perfect way to unwind after a long day. 

Please note: this event will not be live streamed.
