Binaural Portfolio

The real treat !!

These excerpts are from my first complete “for headphones only” album. You can listen to and buy the stereo album on his website here

You’ll love it!!!

First I mixed and mastered it for a stereo release and my good friend Pier d’Andréa gave me permission to give to it the binaural touch. And it opened the door to a new dimension. I don’t know what to say. So simply listen to enjoy the richness and all the details. When you listen to binaural music, put your headphones on, close your eyes, focus on your breathing and experience by only listening until silence opens your eyes.
You can easily switch back and forth between the stereo mix and the binaural mix.

This example is an original composition. My first binaural mix ever. The spatial reproduction fits perfectly to the trance-like music. That’s what I call immersive audio, you bathe in sound for the time of 12 minutes.
Enjoy !
You can listen to more binaural music on our bandcamp page.

“Yademan Bashad Mehraban Basheem” is a remix of a song published by MAJORHITRECORDS. The voice of SHAKILA and all the other instruments realy come to life. The lyrics are very touching. It’s all about becoming a better person and to try not to harm the earth and the air.
The direct comparison of the binaural mix with the stereo mix clearly shows how much more pleasant and natural 3D sounds.
Although any headphone model can be used for binaural reproduction, I recommend at least medium quality and moderate volume. The better the headphones, the finer and more detailed the listening experience.

That was fun !!

The men’s choir is a somewhat backward recording with close-miking technique, a microphone for each singer. Just the normal procedure.
The stereo mixes are quite good.
The stereo image of the singers is well balanced.

And then I got permission to mix these songs for binaural and present them online.

Wow, the sun rose.

Fantastic three-dimensionality, the location of the individual singers is perfect. In order to give the soloists a suitable performance, I placed them about a meter further forward with the automation in the DAW. So in front of the others, closer to the human ear. That’s something other than a simple boost in volume. The change in distance also changes the frequency content of the voice and the relationship between direct sound and reflections. As if the singer were taking a step forward.

But listen for yourself. You can easily switch back and forth between the stereo mix and the binaural mix.

“Madre” is a remix of a very atmospheric song. The voice of the child and the atmosphere of the music inspired me to recreate a church as an ambience. I placed the child’s voice on the right balcony of the church and the first guitar on the left as an answering musical counterpart.
