Spinning on Air interview with R. Murray Schafer

Here is a link to a great audio interview with famed Canadian composer and founder of the World Soundscape Project, R. Murray Shafer. Shafer coined the terms “soundscape” and “acoustic ecology” in his pioneering book, “The Tuning of the World”, published in 1977, in which he discusses how “noise pollution” caused by our industrialized society has overtaken the sound of our natural environment.                               Check out this short film about Schafer which                                                                              gives you a quick sense of his worldview.
