Stereophonic sound is over 75 years old.
Immersive audio –
360-degree sound that envelops the listener –
is the new frontier in sound making.
Auriary is leading the way.
Inspired by the songbird aviary,
Auriary is a habitat for sound
that gives flight to audio experiences
that go beyond stereo.
We collect sounds as they occur in their natural settings,
rear them in our digital sound labs
and exhibit them in immersive listening environments.
We are committed to helping listeners
and creative, enterprise, healthcare and cultural clients
improve their experiences through sound.
The seeds of sounds are collected through field and studio work.
We use the latest in immersive digital recording technology
to capture natural and found sounds
in some of the world’s least obvious places.
We strive for uniqueness,
rarity and the esoteric.
We bring collected sound back to the Auriary labs
where it is cataloged and developed.
We perform digital synthesis and sound shaping,
additional composition and algorithmic programming
to prepare for playback.
Research, the latest advances in sound therapy,
and controlled experiments of our own inform our work
to ensure these sounds evoke the desired experiences among listeners.
We also upmix and remix existing stereo mixes into immersive sound formats.
Our sounds are reproduced through immersive sound environments
from binaural ear buds to multi-array surround speaker systems.
One example is our immersive sound lab,
where we compose, mix and master sound
for playback in a surround sound environment
to ensure what we hear
is what listeners will hear.
