Julian Treasure packs a lot of information about sound into this short TED talk; he describes the ways in which our overly noisy world eats away at our mental health and our sense of peace. We do not design our soundscapes, we just let them happen to us.
Benedictines, take note: he encourages people to sing and speak rhythmically together in a choir or chorus as one way of having a soundscape where our location, our visual sense, and our hearing all come together. Listen to the 8 minute talk for the other recommendations.
