As users with the help of VR headsets explore their virtual environment the sound of the multi-dimensional recording responds in real time. This transforms the listener’s encounter, undermining prevailing notions of acoustical “sweet spots“ and enabling a new and fluid aural experience that mirrors the dynamic interactions inherent in music and between the musicians. In short, where previously an engineer would take the sole authority to determine how the music should be experienced, now the listener has complete freedom to explore for themselves.
These recordings initiate a new phase of classical music recording, one that restores the natural acoustic responsiveness of a live performance while opening new possibilities for interaction between listener, performer, instrument and sound.
With six degrees of freedom for the listener, we can make music that moves you... move with you.
