Binaural Sound and Recording Workshop:
Unlocking the Technology and Technique Behind Complicite’s The Encounter

 

Binaural recordings are reproductions of sound the way human ears hear it. Listening to a binaural recording through headphones creates a 3-D sound sensation.

Gareth Fry, the Olivier Award-winning sound designer behind Complicite’s The Encounter leads a workshop on binaural sound and recording and how it is used in The Encounter.

The Ann Arbor District Library is adding several binaural recording kits to its circulating collection and invites anyone with an interest in learning how to use the equipment or who is simply curious about it to this free workshop session. Gareth is best known for creating work with leading UK theatre directors such as Complicite’s Simon McBurney, John Tiffany, Sacha Wares and Katie Mitchell. Credits include Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Palace, London), Shun-kin (Power Center), Let the Right One in, Black Watch (St Ann’s, New York), Waves and another 20 productions for the National Theatre, and exhibitions such as David Bowie Is for the V&A Museum. He also created the soundscape for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games.

Topics to be covered:

  • How binaural sound is used in Complicite’s The Encounter
  • Why is Binaural sound so special?
  • How to record binaural sound
  • What are the best sounds to record?
  • What to avoid
  •  Making existing sounds binaural
  • 3D modelling and binaural sound
  • Virtual Reality and ambisonics
  • Meet The Encounter’s leading man, the Binaural Head
