Emily's World: behind the scenes of a binaural synthesis production

Document Thumbnail

Three main workflows exist to create binaural content: binaural recording, binaural decoding of Ambisonic recordings, and binaural synthesis. Binaural synthesis, as an object-oriented approach, offers the highest flexibility throughout the creation process (composition, mixing, etc.). Conversely, it typically requires separate takes for each audio source and animations to construct the final spatial mix. “Binaural Steps - Emily’s World” is an 8 min short radio-fiction commissioned to highlight the possibilities of binaural synthesis using studio and Foley recordings. Synthesis was achieved using the Anaglyph binaural audio engine, designed to facilitate the transition of spatial hearing research from laboratory to industry.
