Immersive audio specialist, Sonosphere, has appointed commercial director Jamie Gosney and creative director Henrik Oppermann have been appointed to the company’s board of directors.
Gosney has over 40 years’ experience working in concert touring, theatre, for manufacturers and latterly as an audio systems designer, working on a variety of projects including immersive audio installations. Oppermann, meanwhile, is a 3D sound specialist who has worked as head of sound at immersive content production company Visualise, and has over 10 years of recording studio quality audio on location for film, advertising and music industry clients, as well as 3D sound installations.
“This is a very apposite time to be part of such incredibly creative team,” said Oppermann. “So many changes have happened in a very short space of time, and the way we are listening to music is changing as a consequence.”
“Immersive audio was already finding its place in the live arena, with companies like L-Acoustics developing L-ISA, d&b its Soundscape solution, as well as speaker agnostic solutions such as TiMax, Astro Spatial and Flux Audio’s Spat Revolution Plug-in – that can be used on any digital mixing console,” added Gosney. “Now that people are listening to concerts in their home via live streaming, there’s a real need to present them with a better audio solution and the industry is starting to find ways to do that. With our team’s expertise in the studio, live and installation markets Sonosphere is in the perfect position to help.”
