Hiraeth

Hiraeth

"Hiraeth" is an immersive audio experience that uses Bose AR to explore our primal connection to Earth's quiet places. This multi-sensory journey into deep listening guides us to remember that we are a part of, not apart from, the natural world.

With only 10 places of natural silence left in the United States and no policies existing anywhere in the world to protect quiet places, we are verging on the extinction of silence. As were desperate to exist in an increasingly loud and stressful world our survival depends on our ability to hear and listen to the earth.

With “save what you love” as our watchwords, Hiraeth is our sonic love letter to people and the planet.
