Bioni Samp – Live @Raindance VRX London 2017 – Binaural Sound Design Demo (extract)

Bioni Samp performed a hybrid binaural DJ Set @Raindance VRX London.

I talked briefly about sound design & performed live with 360 binaural audio design used in The Resistance of Honey & Aftershock.

Sounds were position in a rectangle room using two pairs of stereo speakers. I played my own released music, bee field recordings with a mixture of vintage vinyl recordings of Aboriginal, Haitian and Native American music. Here is an extract of the two channel live recording. The recording sounds a busy mix because playback in the room, was on 4 speakers (using twin audio spatializers) and has now been mixed down to a stereo mp3 for soundcloud. In the room it sounded more spacious and minimal 🙂

Bioni Samp played the following instruments:

Hive Synthesiser (6 oscillator prototype)Baby Bee Synth, The Bela Bee (with partial / samples taken from field recordings from two beehives) Electronic Beesmoker, Hex Mixer, Ableton Max For Live, Beequencer, Honey Taster Resonance Detector, EchoFirewire, Beehive Field Recordings,

Thanks to everyone at @Raindance VRX for great technical support and fab staff at a cool event exploring the future of VR.
