What does a lifetime of working in a coal mine sound like? What noises does a California mud pot make? The National Public Radio show “The World According to Sound” provides a gateway into these and other phenomena via 90-second, audio-heavy episodes. Each installment features a unique sound — ranging from blood pulsing through a human brain to a disco track supposedly used by U.S. interrogators to torture detainees — and a snippet of the story behind it. Producers Sam Harnett, who attended Middlebury College, and Chris Hoff bring a live version of the program to the University of Vermont, where they turn off the lights and ask listeners to lend their ears for a purely auditory experience.
