The magicians behind this transformation are sound engineers Andy Jackson and Simon Rhodes and producer Simon Frangeln. AMBEO 3D Audio Technology from Sennheiser is their magic wand and the almost 10-meter-high (33-foot) control room is their stage. There, they released the Pink Floyd classic "Comfortably Numb" from its stereo corset and used the 360-degree surround mix to inject it with unprecedented scope.
The recording is the musical high point of the "Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains" show in London's Victoria and Albert Museum, which begins in May. Sennheiser is the official audio partner of the exhibition, which was meant to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the band's first album. Thanks to AMBEO 3D Audio Technology, museumgoers will feel as though they are in the middle of the audience at a live show. "Immersive audio" will give you goose bumps. Over 350 exhibits, including posters, hand-written song lyrics and instruments also provide unique insight into the band's history, music and singular sound.
