  • Absolute silence doesn't actually exist in nature. Even in the quietest of spaces, there’s still wind blowing, air conditioners humming, and birds chirping. But there's also a huge field of study devoted to quietness. Go inside a Minnesota facility that's devoted to studying the science of silence and find out how silence actually became golden.Paid content presented by 3M: https://www.vox.com/ad/17417806/histo...

    So the title doesn't really make much sense and the video is a bit all over the place but it did have some interesting facts although it could have been organised and titled a-lot better.

    MojaKann Yes, exactly. The usual Vox videos always have facts and arguments that lead organically to the next, and by the end of it, answers the question asked at the beginning. This was a good fact bucket video, but not a great mini documentary.

    I love the obvious disclosure in the title, and I’m sure the FCC does too.

    You should do more sponsored content with 3M, they do some crazy stuff. Like the time they accidentally created a static force field that could stop *people* in their sticky tape lab/factory

    Especially with the reel-to-reel in the icon, I thought they were going to talk about the differences in audio technology (not just tape hiss et al but also mechanical noises from the mechanisms, such as... a certain generation will instantly be able to recall what pressing play on a walkman sounded like while wearing the headphones.) over time, using 3M's own contributions perhaps.... but not really!

    Audio quality is my biggest struggle. Totally agree that good audio is good quality,

  • Benjamin Freddie

    Absolutely. When I edit videos it is definitely a bigger challenge to get the audio right than visuals. And it’s also true that most people can accept a good story with lower quality visuals, but not bad audio. Too much noise in the signal or just plain bad sound design isn’t something people tend to tolerate

  • Uhhhhh

    To not agree would be to say that bad audio is good quality. Your comment is retarded and has completely ruined my day.

    The best musicians understand that silence is also an instrument. Sadly, very, very few of them do.
