Accidental Powercut sessions – a true concert for one

The first of a series of three concerts commissioned to celebrate the launch of our P5 headphone took place last Thursday and was a unique occurence.

The musicians performed acoustically in front of a rapt audience in the atmospheric surrounds of St Barnabas Chapel in Soho. Each concert was recorded on binaural headphones which allows the atmosphere of the music to be recorded for perfect playback on headphones.

Playing in front of the binaural head encouraged total silence from the audience allowing the performers the space to play rather than compete with the usual audience chatter.

The second performance will be on 5th August and the final concert, 2nd September.

Highlights of each show will be made available as binaurally recorded downloads  through Society of Sound over the summer.
