Survival tools meet acoustics in this new video from Acoustic Geometry, which illustrates how our ears and brain are affected by rooms, their treatments and the acoustics within them.

Featuring a Paleolithic diorama and a lot of broken twigs, this short video shows why focusing on one of our most vital survival tools – our hearing – can help us implement more effective acoustic room improvements, and design a room for a better experience using technology combined with our knowledge of sound.
