The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit Show: The Happiness Project - Welcome to My Blue Zone|A-Infos Radio Project

Had a chance to hear Dan Buettner speak at The Richmond Forum this past Saturday night. Buettner is known for his work studying longevity and has developed the concept of Blue Zones - areas of the world where humans live longer than the rst of us. A corollary to his work on longevity is his study of happiness and his analytical approach to measuring happiness. Great program and tonight's show is inspired by his work unlocking the secrets of happiness. I promise that you'll be happier in two hours than you are right now, if you listen to tonight's show. Come on get happy! The Haberdasher Read more on Buettner's work: http://www.bluezones.com/live-happier/ Come On Get Happy The Partridge Family Come On Get Happy!

Thursday 3 October 2013, 7:30pm at West Space. Featuring: Ernie Althoff, Joanne Cannon, Rod Cooper, Bent Leather Band. Moderated by Clinton Green. Three of Australia’s most respected experimental instrument makers discuss the ideas, techniques and inspirations behind their use of recycled materials and redundant technologies to create new instruments and sonic situations. From gutted laser printers to gramophones and cooking pots, the discussion promises to be a veritable trash’n'treasure of musical innovation. http://www.moretalk.org/archives/

Ora 2 : Listening

The second episode of Ora 2 begins with a lullaby that later turns out to be a lament, and it ends with a march anticipated by the refrains of memory. Salomé Voegelin and Daniela Cascella converse and prompt each other to unravel and explore the dynamics of listening in relation to the past and the present. http://ora2013.wordpress.com/2013/07/13/ora-2-listening-25-july-2013/

Hearing the past - Hindsight - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Historians are starting to listen, tuning their ears to the sounds of the past to gain a new understanding of times gone by. Sound may be irretrievable in itself but references to hearing and listening resonate in many written records and can be highly significant for grasping a sense of how people thought in the past. Australian historians are making key contributions to the field of sound history, in particular with the work of Professor Shane White and Graham White at Sydney University. They are specialists in African-American history, and together have written an acclaimed book on the sound history of slavery. They recover the sounds of plantation and urban life and document the differing responses from those who heard them. How sounds are heard is crucial for Professor Mark Smith of the University of South Carolina. He is one of the pioneers in sound history, and has argued for the importance of sound in the thinking of Americans in the years leading up to the Civil War. Meantime historians have begun to consider how Australia was heard in the past—from early explorers to the lead-up to Federation. Many of the themes from the American research resound here too—the power of silence, the appeal of uniformity, the question of noise—suggesting that sound history is going to be heard loudly in the future.

Have You Heard About B Flat? : Krulwich Wonders... : NPR

For reasons that remain mostly mysterious, the note we call "B flat" does the oddest things. It aggravates alligators, it lurks in the stairwell of an office building, and it emanates from a supermassive black hole 250 million light years from Earth. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=7442915

Mustang Physics, April 2011: Sonifying Subatomic Physics

On this episode of “Mustang Physics,” Matt Bellis (Stanford University) discusses his spontaneous collaboration with both physicists and non-physicists that has turned particle collision data into music with the goal of giving new communities an experience with physics data. “Mustang Physics” is your gateway into the world of physics and the lives and thoughts of physicists. Matt Bellis is a post-doctoral researcher at Stanford University. He works on the BaBar Experiment at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. He presented the SMU Physics Department Seminar on March 7, 2011, where he discussed his work on the search for fundamental symmetry violations that might explain our asymmetric cosmos. He spoke with me about his effort to use particle physics data to produce music. This effort would allow whole new communities to experience and use particle physics data. http://blog.smu.edu/mustangphysics/2011/04/30/episode-005-sonifying-subatomic-physics/
