Sound affects us all. Music alters moods, intonation changes inclination, but why? Drawing on the latest research and technological advancements in psychoacoustics, we invite you to explore the relationship between sound, acoustics and wellbeing. Lend us your ears and decipher the psychological and physiological responses we have to everything from music to noise pollution.
