One head, two ears, three dimensions
The audible reality is a binaural program
Sound engineer and 3D audio producer, Pascal Rueff has been exploring
the narrative possibilities of sound immersion for 20 years
Our hearing is binaural : the revolution of 3D sound is actually bringing us back to natural listening. Through compelling audio illusions, one can reach out-o-the-way or long gone realities with incomparable sensation quality. If the ear goes back to being The reference, it is a challenging one, requiring a multidisciplinary expertise. How does binaural sound work, what are the conditions for its implementation, how does it impact the audience ?
As a sound engineer and director, I have been exploring binaural production for live performance and heritage for 20 years. In order to fully understand the implications, I work with the Orange Labs scientists, I’m an expert trainer at the french National Audiovisual Institute (INA) and I design dedicated equipment at Feichter Audio.
My creed : step into reality with simple headphones.
