Immersive Audio: The Future of Sound


Immersive Audio: The Future of Sound

Richard Burki (Future Phonic Studios), Koos Zwaan (Associate Professor)

Join us for an engaging panel discussion on immersive audio, where industry experts Richard Burki (Future Phonic Studios) and Koos Zwaan (Inholland University of Applied Sciences /International Music Industry Lab) will dive into the transformative journey of the (media) music industry, highlighting the pivotal role of technology and the creative possibilities it unlocks.

This thought-provoking session will explore how the industry has evolved in response to challenges like Covid-19, how the industry adapts the new challenges and opportunities in a post Covid-19 world and how it has embraced emerging technologies to redefine the way we experience (film) music.

Our panelists will also discuss the pioneering artists and screen composers who are shaping the future of music through immersive and spatial audio, AI, VR, AR, avatars, and more. Topics include also: examination of key technological milestones that reshaped the media music industry, envisioning the music industry of tomorrow, predictions for how technology will continue to shape music creation and consumption and more. It’s all covered in this panel.

This panel is part of the BMIM x ADE Conference. Presented by Buma Music in Motion. In collaboration with Creative NL
