Paul writes – Radio New Zealand had a fascinating interview last week with Julian Treasure. Treasure is the chair of the Sound Agency, a firm that advises worldwide businesses -- offices, retailers, hotels -- on how to use sound. He challenges us to pay attention to the sounds that surround us. How do they make us feel: productive, stressed, energized, and acquisitive?
It’s a really interesting interview and anyone with an interest in meditation etc will benefit from listening to it. At the very least you’ll come away with some sense of how sound affects us, and the importance of silence.
You can find an Mp3 of the interviewhere by scrolling down to the 27th January 2010. You’ll also find his TED talk on Youtube. TIME carried a little article on him in 2007. You can find it here.
