A truly mind blowing documentary about a modern soundscape, but also an invitation to listen and subsequently observe our environment in new ways This forensic exploration of our noise polluted environment provides a fascinating insight into modern life. From Eric Sartie’s aversion to loud music in a restaurant that gave him the impetus to create soothing background music, to the heartbeat thuds captured from an imploding neutron star as it’s magnetic field sweeps across the earth having taken 2643 years to reach us, to lost birds unable to contact each other, we navigate through the din that surrounds us all.
