28 February 2014

GORDON HEMPTON — THE LAST QUIET PLACES: SILENCE AND THE PRESENCE OF EVERYTHINGHave a listen to this beautiful radio program about silence, which as per Gordon Hempton's definition is the presence of sound and the absence of noise.

"Silence is an endangered species, says Gordon Hempton. He defines real quiet as presence — not an absence of sound, but an absence of noise. The Earth, as he knows it, is a "solar-powered jukebox." Quiet is a "think tank of the soul." We take in the world through his ears."
