Episode Summary

EDIT
Battle of Ideas: Turn That Racket Off
AIRED:
Battle of Ideas: Turn That Racket Off at the 2007 Battle of Ideas conference hosted by the Institute of IdeasMusic is everywhere, but do we really listen? With high-tempo dance music in shops and computerised Mozart as we wait for a phonecall to be connected, it seems impossible to escape the relentless soundtrack to modern life. Should we learn to relish silence, the better to appreciate real music? Or is this objection to ubiquitous music just a form of snobbery? Do people simply get used to unwanted noise, and listen attentively when there's something worth listening to? Is it time to turn it off, or is it just a question of quality over quantity? - IoImoreless
