The Distortion of Sound

30/07/2015

distort of sound logo

This past Wednesday for our regular staff development session, Bush Radio staff and trainees watched an interesting documentary called “The Distortion of Sound” about their perceived decline of sound quality and how technology has changed the way we listen to music.

Featuring: Mike Shinoda, Slash, Quincy Jones, Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki , Lianne La Havas and others the documentary makes for some interesting viewing.

The documentary raised some interesting questions and comments from the group – ranging from progress versus technology to agenda setting.

Thanks to Ernestine Deane for directing us to this documentary and several others.

This wasn’t the first time, or the last, that terrestrial, free radio would be deemed obsolete.

Tutankhamun – His Tomb and the Treasures has meticulously reconstructed the famous tomb and the golden artifacts found by Howard Carter in November 1922, with the help of Cairo craftspeople who built more than a thousand exact replicas over five years.
