The system was created by Amsterdam-based audio company 4DSOUND with artists and musicians including Kali Malone, Max Cooper, Oren Amarchi, NikNak and more. It’s scheduled to be launched in the English capital next month.
The 4SOUND experience will be running as a series of immerse events using its unique system in the venue named Stone Nest, after initially being showcased in Cardiff.
A large-scale set of spatial audio speakers are hoped to immerse the audience with 360-degree sound, offering live performances, diffusions, workshops and more.
Speaking to DJ Mag, 4DSOUND director Poul Holleman said “For a decade we have been developing what we like to call spatial sound instruments; site-specific sound systems which are able to project sound holograms in a listening area, enabling artists to actually play the space as an instrument.”
“Our intention is to provide captivating listening experiences where sounds can range from realistic environments, to incredibly surreal electronic manipulations, and everything in-between. It’s not easy to describe in words the full potential of 4DSOUND’s technology, so we’d like to invite everyone with an interest or curiosity in spatial sound to join us at Stone Nest.”

The experience will launch on 21 April until 20 May.
