David Hendy explores the soundscape of the American colonialists - and their conflict with native American Indians.
Settlers arriving in America in the 17th century decreed the songs and sounds of native American Indians to be barbaric and wild - bloodcurdling hollering that might presage the most brutal of deaths.
Professor David Hendy of the University of Sussex explores the colonial politics of sound.
