Sound Matters: Podcast
Bang & Olufsen's award-winning podcast series is heading into its third season in early 2018. Writer and producer, Tim Hinman, talks listening, our soundscape, and the noise of the city.

Our surrounding soundscape is as important as the landscape we see around us. And sound gets inside of us in a way that no other sense allows for. You cannot switch off hearing, we feel it through our bodies, it makes us move differently, it makes us happy or upset, relaxed or alert. Our soundscape is part of who we are individually, as well as collectively.
“That’s what we are trying to get to understand in series three – how we, as the collective human race, deal with the noise we make, and that surrounds us,” explains series producer and writer Tim Hinman as he takes some time out to speak with me in his studio. “How are we changed by our soundscape? How do we change it ourselves, for better or for worse? And it’s important that we look at cities, especially in terms of sound design and noise pollution for the future, because more and more of us are living in cities. How can we get through the noise?”
