IOSONO wraps Sydney Harbour in 3D sound

Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour 2013, which premiered on March 22, is an open air production of Georges Bizet’s “Carmen” set against the backdrop of Sydney harbour and the Sydney Opera House.

The stage measuring 32 by 24 metres resembles a bullfighting ring and appears to float on Sydney Harbour. With dazzling costumes and firework effects, the audience experience is rounded off with a high quality sound system by IOSONO. “It’s impossible to describe how tactile and realistic IOSONO’s spatial audio processor renders the orchestra and singers,” says Tony David Cray, sound designer for Opera on Sydney Harbour.

The system allows for a natural localisation of the orchestra and all singers. IOSONO’s Spatial Audio Processor and 20 line array speakers will fill the harbour with crystal clear sound, corresponding to the singers’ actual position.

All 3,500 listeners can enjoy a stable location of the sounds on stage without any impairment of the stage design, as the speakers are placed on the floor in front of the quay wall.
