If we learned one thing about the electronic music industry through the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s that our ability to innovate in the world of technology is endless. One of the more important factors of innovations in the genre is the way we hear audio. Every track, every mix, every element is meant to be heard a certain way. With the introduction of spatial audio, songs will be taken to a whole new artistic level.
This idea of space has become even more crucial with the rise in the popularity of live streams. While visuals provide a specific theme and mood for the online viewer, nothing matters if you don’t have outstanding audio. With technology moving almost faster than any other industry, consumers can create an audio environment that rivals professional venues. There must an alternative to give viewers a brand new way of hearing their favorite tracks, something they have never experienced before, which is the essence of spatial audio.
L-Acoustics told IMS Ibiza in their 2021 Business Report that “space is the next frontier in sound.” To increase viewers and engagement technology has given electronic artists “the ability to use space as a type of instrument.” L-Acoustics also says that the drop can “be 10 times more spectacular” because of the movement of sound and transformation in space.
