About Sound World

Music is one of the few true human universals, present in some form in every culture known to us around the world. Sound World explores some of the technical, historical, emotional and philosophical dimensions of music in its myriad forms and manifestations, reminding us that in life music is never as far away or inaccessible as it sometimes is made to seem.
