Listen to an ‘immersive 3D audio’ BBC drama
bit.ly/mermaids433 The BBC has created a new interactive ‘object-based’ radio drama called The Mermaid’s Tears, recorded in immersive 3D audio. Created by the Beeb’s Research & Development team, the series lets you tune into the perspectives of three different characters. How you interpret what is really happening is influenced by which character you choose, as the evolving story is observed from their point of view, conversations and internal monologues. To get the most from the audio enhancements, you can choose to listen in stereo, surroundsound or with binaural audio on headphones. You can also rate the project and share it, and check out previous audio experiments.
