The importance of sound when the stakes are high:

Sound in emergency situations

Be it a call that you have to make in an emergency situation, or a communication between a pilot and control tower on a flight you are on, audio can be the difference between life and death.

How does audio shape the world by letting bad things not happen? In everyday life, we are surrounded by situations that require clear and concise communication that could be an issue of life or death. It might be a call that you have to make in an emergency situation, or a communication between a pilot and control tower on a flight you are on. In these high stakes scenarios that we often take for granted, audio plays an essential role. How and why is the transmission of audio make-or-break in difficult situations, and possibly even saving our lives in ways we don’t realize?
