Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Acoustician and science writer Mike Goldsmith explains the science of sound and how sound waves are exploited in musical instruments. He explores sound in many different contexts – audible, inaudible, underwater and underground. Goldsmith is former head of acoustics at the National Physical Laboratory and author of Discord: The Story of Noise and more than 40 children’s science books.
