Heath Sound Vault is a community-driven online audio network, bringing together a ‘sound collective’ of producers and volunteers.
Sound Vault aims to craft a collection of shows by giving anyone the opportunity to pitch a show idea, and if successful, will work with them to produce it, and bring it to the attention of the wider world via the network.
“An Audio Listener’s Guide to Adequate Hearing” is a tongue in cheek, audio instructional manual for your ears. Its eight episodes combine music, sound design and narration (in the style of an early BBC Radio presenter). Each episode tackles a theme surrounding sound’s cultural and practical presence in our lives, along with spreading good practices in listening as a whole.
The series attempts to serve several purposes :-
An introduction to audiophilia, and a celebration of it;
The series will be full of dry and surrealist humour, and can be listened to as a comedy;
A relaxed listening experience that is expertly mastered to sound fantastic over good speakers and headphones. Something to chill out too;
In a wider sense, it acts as an introduction to Sound Vault as a whole, if not explicitly, kicking off the station with a celebration of listening, combining sounds from the world, music and written comedy.
The series features the talents of voice actor Paul Enright-King.
