In this episode: The string quartet Brooklyn Rider performs selections from their new album, A Walking Fire, in our studio.
Plus: We hear from a few more listeners about how they deal with noise in their day-to-day lives -- and, we bring you an excerpt from a recent BBC 4 radio series called "Noise: A Human History."

Also: Two weeks ago, the New York violinist, vocalist and composer Caroline Shaw became the youngest person to win the Pulitzer Prize for music. She talks about her award-winning composition.
