What are the sonic wonders of the world? Trevor Cox, a renowned professor who engineers classrooms and concert halls, has made a career out of eradicating bizarre and unwanted sounds. But after an epiphany in the London sewers, Trevor now revels in exotic noises – creaking glaciers, whispering galleries, stalactite organs, musical roads, humming dunes, seals that sound like alien angels, and a Mayan pyramid that chirps like a bird. Join him and discover how sound is made and altered by the environment, become a better listener in a visual world, and open your ears to the glorious cacophony around you.
