Noise & The Megacity: PA Systems (Audio)

Nov 19, 2019
Hosted by Paulus van Horne.
A dive into an archive of collected noises from 10 megacities across the globe. Interviews and ruminations will be mixed in with these sounds, in search of a better understanding of a fundamental question: "what is noise? About this month's broadcast, Paulus van Horne writes, "The history of PA systems is surprisingly well-chronicled on Wikipedia. For more information about the politics and power of sound in general, the following books were influential in the creation of this program: Beyond Unwanted Sound by Maria Thompson and Sonic Warfare by Steve Goodman."
