#endPoverty

Today is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
“The best anti-poverty program is a world-class education.” former President Obama remarked in a State of the Union speech.

We invite you to share your thoughts on how we can collectively work together to make education fun, and accessible to everyone, and contribute to the eradication of poverty worldwide.

Spatial Audio in Music

Seeing live music always a great experience for music lovers, partly because the intimacy of acoustic sound in a room makes us feel the presence of the music more so than listening to a stereo recording.
Spatial Audio is evolving the way that producers create music and the way that we listen to music. New recording and mixing techniques reflect the way we receive sound in real life, creating intense and rich soundscapes you would experience if you were actually there.
Crosswater’s Audio Engineers have been dedicated to Spatial Audio for years, and are ready to incorporate these new and exciting methods into your mix. Tag a musician, and tell them to consult Crosswater about how these methods could be incorporated into their music!

Take a break from reality and enjoy this virtual jazz VR/360 experience!
The Bobby Militello Quartet performs the Bobby Jones tune, “Straight Ahead.”
This virtual experience was made possible by the Buffalo State Music Department with their beautiful Louis P Ciminelli Recital Hall, and by the Buffalo Jazz Collective along with all of the world class musicians who work with them.
The VR/360 experience was recorded by a GoPro OmniPro camera rig, and spatial audio was captured on a Sennheiser Ambisonic microphone.
