Andrés Mayo and Martín Muscatello join Sennheiser AMBEO for the first session of a regular series of presentations and discussions with leading immersive audio practitioners talking about what they're working on.
They will be speaking about their project "Album #1". Andrés Mayo described this project as: "This is our first project exclusively tailored for immersive audio listeners. We produced 6 tracks using all the available techniques, including Ambisonics, binaural and standard close-miking recordings, 360 spatialisation via dedicated software, even reamplification techniques for more complex object location. The goal is twofold: we aim to show the possibilities of the 360 technology but at the same time, and more importantly, we want to develop an artistic project that preserves musicality on top of everything else."
Andrés Mayo, former President of the AES (Audio Engineering Society), is an audio engineer and music producer who has pioneered the art of mastering since 1992. He boasts credits in more than 3,000 albums released in vinyl, CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, streaming and 360-degree audio formats. He won two GRAMMY Awards and seven Gardel Awards for Technical Excellence.
