A look at the physics of sound, the evolution of human hearing, and the science of manipulating the former to leverage the latter. How can we take an empathetic, outcomes-first approach to audio system and content design. It begins with 'How do we want the audience to feel?' Then we apply that to the practical question of 'How can we use audio to help trigger the desired emotional state?' A unique look at how to create truly immersive audio experiences that envelope listeners in an emotional experience. Combined with application-based proof that including immersive audio in the initial design phases of a project allows you to achieve these effects at one-quarter the cost of bringing it in at the end.
