Herbie Hancock and Meyer Sound: Experimenting with Concert Surround Sound

December 7, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

In summer 2013, at Stanford University’s Bing Concert Hall, keyboardist and jazz pioneer Herbie Hancock rolled out a concept he has been fascinated with for over 20 years. Using a multichannel surround system from Meyer Sound, Hancock brought the surround sound of movie theatres to a one-of-a-kind live concert experience that cannot be heard elsewhere.

To realize Hancock’s vision, Meyer Sound set up a system with 45 loudspeakers and 28 channels. The heart of the system was the SpaceMap┬« multichannel surround panning technology, which allowed Hancock to pan sounds around the 800-seat concert hall in real time, controlling movement via a touch-screen tablet.

Watch Hancock and Jason Rauhoff, senior digital audio products specialist for Meyer Sound, discuss the artist’s vision of surround sound in a concert setting and the technology that helped bring it to life.
