W8 - SURROUND SOUND IN RADIO
Bosse Ternstrom, SR - Swedish Radio
Karl Petermichl, ORF Radio
Heinz-Peter Reykers, WDR Köln
Gerhard Stoll, IRT - Munich, Germany
Multichannel audio in radio is steadily catching up and sometimes surpassing the TV realm with regards to number of productions, diversity of genres, and dedication of the people involved. Although there shouldn't be a direct competition, the inherent greater freedom of radio concerning the dramaturgical creativity in genres like radio drama or experimental and electro-acoustic music has led to a promising output of surround sound programs in those stations that pioneer this new format. The panel consists of what you already can call “veterans” of surround sound in radio, and they will discuss the state of the art, current issues, and solutions like file formats, LFE, signal distribution, etc., as well as showcase some of their respective work.
