3D audio has enormous potential to touch audiences on a deeply emotional level: The most powerful impact occurs when the sonic and musical layers work hand in hand. If this is the case, everyone gets goosebumps. But what is the secret to maximizing this potential?

Timbres attract a lot of attention when they are colorful and lively. In the first part of his workshop, Lasse Nipkow presents a quasi-binaural spot-miking technique that makes instruments appear three-dimensional in the playback room as if the musicians were standing there. The recording room also contributes significantly to the sonic signature of the production. Lasse Nipkow shows the influence of great-sounding rooms and how they can be used as multichannel impulse responses in 3D audio productions at any time.

The musical structure is key to an extraordinary musical experience. It creates a connection between notes and sounds and thus contributes to an intense envelopment. The result can be paraphrased by the following image: The musicians sit around the audience and play a piece of music together. The listener feels like they're sitting in the middle of an orchestra or ensemble. In the second part of his workshop, Lasse Nipkow will play sound samples that follow this musical concept and were created in collaboration with Grammy-nominated sound engineer Ronald Prent.
