The Tuning of the World
The soundscape is our acoustic environment, the ever-present noises with which we all live. The author suggests that we now suffer from acoustical overload and are less able to hear the nuances and subtleties of sound. Our task, he maintains, is to listen, analyze and make distinctions in spite of sound pollution.
