What Builds UsJun 01, 2021



In this third episode of Season Three, we are talking all about sound! Sean and Brian talk through how important sound is in understanding space, and how we all take cues about spaces from the sounds we hear. Then we have three great interviews with a series of musicians! We talk to Boston bands Bat House and Hawthorn, as well as recording engineer Colin Fleming. All three share great insights about the power of sound and music to shape space and experience.
