The Nature of Sound

 
 
 

A journey into the world of sound and music with Julius Sumner Miller, Brian Greene, Bill Nye, Yehudi Menuhin and more. Sound has always fascinated me - the way mere vibrations in the air can evoke such strong emotions, and how humans create our own meaning from arbitrary motion of molecules. We are like gods, building huge cathedrals of sonic beauty from minute, invisible physical forces that surround us.
