The critically acclaimed documentary, In Pursuit of Silence, is now available on general release across the UK. To celebrate, we’re giving you the chance to win your very own copy – all you need to do is answer this quick question, based on one of our recent news posts:
At their busiest times, some restaurants are said to be exceeding which of the following… 40dBA, 80dBA or 90dBA?
This meditative film focuses on the value of silence, our relationship with sound and the implications of living in such a noisy world. Anderson Acoustics is proud to have supported the project from its original conception stage and there’s even a quick cameo from our very own Andy Knowles! We wanted to support the film to help spread the word about the contribution and influence of sound in our lives and what opportunities it can offer us.
Our review of the UK premier is available here.
For further details or to buy the DVD please visit the In Pursuit of Silence website.
At Anderson Acoustics, we believe it’s time to go beyond the traditional “noise is a problem” approach. Treating noise as a problem to be mitigated, reduced and controlled is necessary but misses opportunities to harness positive aspects of sound to deliver benefits to health, wellbeing and quality of life.
We provide consultancy services to assess, mitigate and manage the risks arising from the impacts of noise and vibration. But we also positively apply our understanding of sound, soundscapes and sound quality to deliver better buildings and spaces; better communities and places; and better products.

We are delighted to have supported Quiet Mark and In Pursuit of Silence, and we continue to share their goal of promoting the importance of the acoustic environment, sound quality, and soundscapes for better health and wellbeing.
“There is nothing more beneficial, physically and spiritually, than silence.”
