Free Radicals - Science of Sound

Now we're getting into the swing of things with our third show. And another holiday Monday! This time it's Canada Day. We decided to celebrate with a show about the science of sound because, after all, not only does Canada have a lot of good sounds in it, but was fundamental in creating the academic field of Sound Studies.

We talk about the physics of sound and the extent of human perception of the vast and varied soundscape. Charlotte Scott, Montreal sound scholar and artist, shares a clip of one of her sound projects and talks about sound perception in different environments.
