This second part of a “Siren Song” special series looks at our sense of sound. How would we communicate without speech and laughter even in the digital age? What is a modernday movie without its soundtrack? And where would we be without music? Rhythm, drums, thunder, gun-shots, bombs, growls, footsteps, screams—all of them sounds we need to hear and recognize in order to survive . Even our word for “absurd” means basically “unheard of”.
Produced and presented by Dheera Sujan
