Nick Cave 3D audio spatial mix anyone?

Nick Cave’s new novel, The Death of Bunny Munroe, is being released as an audiobook this week. Not so interesting as news in itself,  but it’s being released via Apple’s app store.

Clearly no ordinary audio book. As well as a soundtrack composed by Mr. Cave and his fellow Bad Seed Warren Ellis, the audio  has been mixed in what his publishers describe as a “groundbreaking 3D audio spatial mix” courtesy of Arup Acoustics

What this means is that the sound is designed specifically for headphones so gives the listener a far more immersive experience and therefore making the action far more immediate.

Not known for pioneering new media forms, Nick Cave commented:

“I’ve suddenly found myself at the cutting edge of the way we may read books in the future but it’s all been something of a surprise to me.”
