Noise Abatement Society new online publication informs the soundtrack of our lives

SOUNDSCAPE – WHERE LIFE SOUNDS GOOD 

The Noise Abatement Society is pleased to announce the launch of its flagship online publication – SoundScape, where life sounds good.

The first publication of its kind, this inaugural issue was borne out of the current need to reconnect with the aural environment for the benefit of everyone’s emotional and physical health.

Designed specifically to educate, inform and inspire, the ezine investigates the soundscape, evaluating its influence on our health, wellbeing and environment for the benefit of all life. It brings to the fore technologies, strategies and products that positively affect noise pollution, providing solutions and championing industry best practice.

Both holistic and pragmatic, SoundScape perfectly reflects the ethos of the NAS to help find practical solutions to solve existing noise problems, to safeguard both present and future generations. It takes into account views from academics, activists, designers, industry, parliamentarians and the public, who share their views, experiences and hopes for the future of our aural ecology.

The launch issue pulls into focus the work of real life heroes and warns of a ticking “time-bomb” that will destroy our current teenagers’ hearing if they do not learn to listen responsibly to their mp3 players. Also featured are perceptive opinion pieces on the state of domestic noise in Britain and the need to establish and protect sound ecosystems.

“SoundScape intelligently investigates the sounds that affect our lives. It explores new ways of solving noise problems by researching how sound can be viewed as a ‘resource’ rather than traditional approaches which try to combat noise simply as ‘waste’,” explains Lisa Lavia, NAS managing director and editor-in-chief of SoundScape. “SoundScape puts into context, how we can positively change and enhance the environment for the benefit of our health and wellbeing.”
