The Spatial Sound Institute seeks participants for an experiment on physiological reception and mental experience of sound. The experiment will take place in 4DSOUND - an advanced immersive sound system where the listener is experiencing sound in multiple dimensions. The study will involve monitoring participants’ brain activity using EEG (an unobtrusive brainwave measure) under the direction of neuroscientist Dr. Anat Barnea, as well as psychological questionnaires. The study will take place on 27-28 October at Funkhaus Berlin.
On May 4th, 4DSOUND founder Paul Oomen gave a talk at the TEDxDanubia conference at MUPA Budapest investigating the nature of listening and addressing its fundamental relationship with the evolution of our environments. With their eyes closed throughout the talk, the audience was taken through a listening meditation using a 4DSOUND system installed in the theatre.
4DSOUND's creative director John Connell examines the impact of noise pollution in our physical and digital spaces, and new directions made available by focused listening practices and spatial sound technologies.
