MMQS project is inspired by the work of Murray Schafer and the World Soundscape Project (and here) that he founded in the 1960s (thanks to Amanda Belantara for opening this particular door to us at St Lukes Art Project) . As well as the work of the WSP Murray Shcafer was also a composer, musician, writer, educator and environmentalist particularly concerned with acoustic ecology.
I often wonder, what Murray Schafer, now aged 84 makes of our sonic world. The concerns that he writes about in the The Soundscape: the Tuning of the World are if anything more serious today than ever.
This video tells us something, take a moment, watch it, listen, then consider what you can do :
