The world is full of the unseen… sound. It is a hidden world that we often forget to tune into as we go about the hustle and bustle of our lives. I’d like to encourage people to begin their sound explorer journey, by sharing some examples from around the world.
Eyad Hasbullah: How to be a sound explorer

Eyad is a graduate of the School of Acoustics at the University of Salford. He spent the first half of his career as an acoustics consultant in the UK, Singapore, and Australia, where he worked on landmark development and the design of hotels, parks, event spaces, oil rigs and ships from an acoustics perspective. He now pursues acoustics as a hobby and looks forward to recruiting others on his Sound Explorer walkabouts in and around KLCC. He spends his time in Kuala Lumpur with his wife and son.
ABOUT THE THEME
Silence As the year comes to an end, life can get humorously hectic. Is this inevitable? Or can we find ways to ground ourselves amid all the chaos? In this busy season, create moments of stillness where you can. When silence is intentional, it is valuable and restorative. It brings us back to our senses and is essential to our holistic well-being. Acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton defines quiet as a ‘presence’ and ‘think tank of the soul.’ Silence is a powerful tool that allows us to take a step back from the atmosphere around us and realign with our intentions, our hopes, and ourselves.
