A Sound Effect on People
About This Show
A Sound Effect on People is a show that explores how we're all affected by sound, or to use a technical term, by acoustics. We'll investigate how poor acoustics can be disruptive, even harmful, while good acoustics can help us learn, work productively, even heal. We'll discover that our responses to sound are both psychological and physiological. And we'll learn about how people with different personalities react in different ways to the same sounds.
A Sound Effect on People is produced by Saint-Gobain Ecophon, a manufacturer that specialises in developing and producing materials that improve room acoustics.

In this fourth episode of A Sound Effect on People, itself part one of two; we investigate the impact of good acoustic design in healthcare. Hospitals are often noisy places, and not just due to the beeping of alarms. They are places of communication, filled with their own rhythm and routines, the clank of the tea trolley alongside the welcome distraction of chatting visitors. When combined with the hard surfaces that are sometimes necessary for cleaning, it can become difficult to maintain the calm environment needed for healing.
