UK - Sonosphere has welcomed the new year by remembering a busy 2021. Most significantly, the company was involved in the 5G Festival (5GF) project, central to the continuing advancements in using 5G technology in a new way for the entertainment industry. In addition, the Sonosphere management team completed a buyout of the company, with Duncan Bell joining as commercial director; this was swiftly followed by the team supplying immersive audio for the public launch of Ed Sheeran’s new album.
2022 is set to be as busy, with multiple projects in the pipeline including a major interactive multimedia exhibition that will open in Germany in the New Year, spatialising the work of a Saudi Arabian producer and composer, and an immersive audio installation into a major London venue.
“The November 5GF trials were a seminal moment for the entire consortium of companies involved in the project,” says Bell. “The rest of the Sonosphere team have been involved in 5GF since it started in September 2020. Of course, I didn’t come to the project until October 2021 and it’s been incredible to see how the team has worked together to develop technologies, based around the 5G network, that has the potential to change the way the music industry works.”
Also central to the company’s portfolio is the continuing partnership with Metropolis Studios, home of Sonosphere’s Dolby Atmos certified immersive studio, and our work to spatialise a selection of Amazon Music’s back catalogue.
“Immersive audio has always been central to my vision for Sonosphere, but when we started the company, it was still a bit of a buzz word. Now it’s not only central to every conversation we have, but it’s the current topic across the industry as a whole,” concludes Sonoshpere creative director, Jamie Gosney.
