Composer R. Murray Schafer will inspire you to listen to the music of sound. His 1977 book "The Tuning of the World" is full of original, evocative observations and insights about the roles music and sound play in human lives. Schafer, considered by some to be Canada's pre-eminent composer, makes a rare visit to New York, and talks with host David Garland about the ideas behind "The Tuning of the World," and about his music, which includes Patria, a cycle of music and theater pieces on an extraordinarily grand scale.
