Audience members wear headphones throughout the performance in order to experience the production's innovative binaural sound
; performers use microphones within their ears, allowing audiences to literally get inside their heads, giving a more exciting and immersive listening experience than in a traditional theatre environment.
Audience members will wear headphones throughout the performance to experience the production's innovative binaural sound
, which creates immersive spatial audio experiences for listeners.
The show employs binaural sound
, which uses two microphones to create a 3-D stereo sound for a fully immersive experience.
There has never been an easier way to record binaural sound
with this level of quality for any level of user.
The incredible recordings were captured in Highfield Road's West Terrace, using a technique known as "binaural sound
" - similar to the technique used in VR and gaming to produce an effect of hyper-realistic, 360 "surround" sound when listened using headphones.
The in-ear headphones are designed to let you create binaural sound
on-the-go and once created the files will works with any pair of headphones.
Among the speakers were Jutta Toelle of Frankfurt's Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics, Henkjan Honing, who teaches Musical Cognition at Amsterdam University, and Austrian composer Olga Neuwrith, who talked about using binaural sound
and the "spacialization" of music in her own piece at the festival, Le Encantadas o le avventure nel mare delle merauiglie (The Enchanted Isles or Admitures in a Sea of Wonders).
Another study emphasized that the early and late blind individuals recorded significantly better results than the sighted subjects after performing binaural sound
localization tasks .
You might do both, or neither, in this hour-long show performed in absolute darkness, and with binaural sound
, by Glen Neath and David Rosenberg.
