Goose’s binaural Synrise

After two decades, four albums and headline slots at major festivals including Rock Werchter, Pukkelpop and Tomorrowland, Belgium electronic rock band Goose are marking the tenth anniversary of their second album, Synrise, with a binaural recording of the title track.

The project is a collaboration between the band, Sennheiser and the Music Research Expertise Unit of Belgium’s PXL University of Applied Sciences and Arts. ‘We had been introduced to immersive sound for multiple applications such live mixing and experiencing live music in a room, or using the technology in our IEMs,’ the band say. ‘But none of these applications seemed useful to us – we love the simplicity of a good old rock ’n roll show – speakers left and right and a crowd jumping up and down...

Bini’s Crystal Vision

Owner of the House of Glass in Tuscany and one of the prime movers behind the Ocean Trax record label, Italian producer/remixer Gianni Bini has a single ambition… ‘My mission is to achieve the state of the art in every step of production,’ he says. ‘From the microphones to the cables, the preamps, and to the editing mixing and mastering, I want to be the point of reference in terms of quality of sound. It’s my personal mission and I invest big money in achieving it.’

Although the original studio was destroyed in the Viareggio railway disaster in 2009, SSL has long been an integral part of this mission.

National Museum of Qatar

Joining an already striking skyline, the National Museum of Qatar is visually stunning. Designed by architect Jean Nouvel, the museum contains more than 86,000sq-ft of exhibition space, with interconnected galleries offering walls of video and immersive, multi-dimensional audio created using Flux::Immersive’s Spat Revolution.

The museum’s immersive audio design was created by Switzerland-based Idee und Klang, a pioneering multimedia agency noted for its approach for integrating sound scenography with immersive audio design.

Caverns go Above Ground

Home to the Emmy-winning PBS television series Bluegrass Underground, The Caverns is a naturally-occurring subterranean amphitheatre at the base of the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee’s Pelham valley. Counting performances from many of the biggest and fastest-rising names in music, its Big Mouth Cave draws more than 50,000 visitors each year to experience concerts in a unique setting with natural acoustics and beauty.

Like all other music venues, this prehistoric site had to close for the current pandemic, with Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit kicking off The Caverns’ Covid-compliant Above Ground Concert Series with a four-night run of outdoor shows on the grounds above the cave.
