Just discovered this fascinating programme on acoustic design at BBC radio 4's listen again page.
Apparently first broadcast nearly 2 years ago, there's lots of interesting stuff on ancient and modern design techniques, from a wierd Mayan temple witha bizarre reverb meant to emulate a sacred bird, to anechoic chambers, impulse response physical modelling(hello Richard) and the strange goings on at the festival hall.
Eno puts in an appearance too.
