My brother, Anthony Magen - an acoustic ecologist, artist and landscape architect talking on Radio National about Sound Walks and the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.
The joys of listening
"Jazz music has been known to border the esoteric at times but what have ambient street noises got to do with a Jazz Festival.
As an acoustic ecologist, Anthony Magen wants to promote a culture of listening, and takes people on listening walks through city spaces.
His Soundwalks are a feature of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival. He joins Patricia Karvelas in The Drawing Room along with musician Marc Hannaford to chat about the art of listening."
