Great footage from Accidental Powercut binaural gigs

Great footage from accidental powercut

We recently commissioned a series of exclusive gigs, recorded binaurally, to celebrate the launch of our P5 headphones.

This fascinating process captures the sound of the event exactly as a person would perceive it live, capturing the true ambience and sound of the time and space and the results are astonishing.

You can download the recordings of the first concert here.

The second of the Accidental Powercut gigs was filmed and you can see the footage here. The recordings from this concert will be available to download from Society of Sound shortly.

    I love this recording and this old recording method is fantastic to listen to via headphones. Wish more recordings were made this way, like classical music and unplugged concerts and much much more. But Thorsten you are right I to worry that the rest of the world are just not in to MUSIC unless it is mainstream. Keep up the good work B&W.
