Professor takes podium at globally renowned concert hall to showcase unique immersive audio technology

News Type


Professor Tony Myatt, Head of the Department of Music and Media at the University of Surrey, has performed a world-first demonstration of a new immersive audio experience, integrating three cutting-edge audio systems for the first time. He teamed up with wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson, best known for his work on David Attenborough’s wildlife documentaries, to present this artistic technical project.


For me, there really is nowhere else in the world that can offer facilities like EMPAC; it boasts a pristine acoustic environment and houses the best technical equipment there is. This invitation to showcase a unique immersive audio technology combination presented a very rare and incredibly exciting opportunity.
