What is Surround Sound Music?
Surround Sound Music is a blog about, you guessed it, surround sound music. Music that goes beyond stereo, music that is enjoyed with more than 2 speakers (typically 5 plus a subwoofer) surrounding the listener, for a truly immersive listening experience.
Is surround sound the future of music listening?
Well, yes and no. Surround sound has been around for quite some time now and has even been declared dead by some when it comes to music. But I do believe, that with the growing number of surround sound systems in living rooms these days (most likely bought for movies), it has a chance to reach more people than just the enthusiasts longing for more quality content.
The goal for this blog is to become a knowledge base for everything related to surround sound music, from the equipment to use, how to set it up to reviews and recommendations of the latest surround sound releases. So if you share my passion for surround sound, follow me on facebook and or twitter to stay up to date.
Feel free to comment the posts if you’ve got something to share or contact me here.
Is surround sound music really that great?
YES! But why take my word for it? Here’s a quote by famous blockbuster composer and sound designer Hans Zimmer.
I don’t even know why anybody would want to get out of bed and make a stereo recording. There’s a thing that happens, when you can be inside the music, which is really what surround does, that is so much nicer.
Well said Hans
And the proof of that statement can be heard in form of a 5.1 surround sound version of the soundtrack to the movie Inception.
