TED Talks: Julian Treasure “We Need to Teach Listening in Our Schools”

Julian Treasure’s advice on listening-practice is remarkably similar to Michel Chion’s “Three Modes of Listening“.

Treasure is succinct and elegant presenting what can be pretty abstract for a lot of people.

I’m a little less enamored with his comparisons of the washing machine sounds to a waltz. I would have preferred that he encourages people to examine sounds on their own terms rather than hook them back up to something safe and familiar.

Yet, I’m sure his presentation might make the uninitiated reexamine the pejorative connotations associated with the word “noise”.
