Stephan Köthe and I presented our VR research project „Film | Orchestra | 360°“ at Tonmeistertagung 29 in Cologne. It’s a convention showcasing the latest in professional audio technology. We were honored to present alongside manufacturers such as Schoeps, Neumann, Sennheiser, SSL, various broadcasting companies and fellow researchers like Michael Williams and Kimio Hamasaki.
„Film | Orchestra | 360°“ is a project at the Film University Babelsberg focussing on immersive formats such as virtual reality, 360° and 180° cinema, Dolby Atmos, Auro3D and wave field synthesis. We recorded a film score with Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg using various 3D microphone techniques, a 3D scanner and a couple of 360° camera rigs. Eventually, we want to compare the different audiovisual formats regarding their aesthetic and dramaturgic value and possible workflows.
