Hudson Program Examines 3-D Sound

The relationship between or ears and our brains isn’t always what we think. Most of us take the way we hear sound, which of course includes music, for granted. But, as acoustician Edgar Choueiri has hypothesized, the brain can be tricked into believing it is experiencing a live performance, when it is actually a recording being heard. And on May 22 at Time & Space Limited, he’ll demonstrate exactly how with a presentation titled “Making Waves—Sounds of the Future,” part of Close Encounters with Music’s “Conversations With…” series.

For the program, Choueiri, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton University and head of the school’s 3-D Audio and Applied Acoustics Lab, will bring his binaural audio setup to Time & Space Limited’s art space to discuss the fruits of a decade of development, application, and refinement of this revolutionary, groundbreaking system of recording that captures life-like, 3-D audio in picture-perfect fidelity. “Prepare to be fooled,” says Choueiri about binaural recording systems, which are uniquely designed to emulate the workings of the human head. “You can hear a bird flying over your head. You’ll hear a whisper in one ear.”
For a taste of Choueiri’s innovations, watch this:

“Making Waves—Sounds of the Future” takes place on May 22 at 2pm. Tickets are $15, which includes a light refreshment. For more information, call (800) 843-0778 or visit http://www.cewm.org/.
