Since David Bowie praised Ozark Henry’s debut album as one of his favorites, the Belgian artist has produced Music ranging from avant-garde electronica to pop and even a symphonic album with the National Orchestra of Belgium.
Today, Ozark Henry, a gold and platinum recording artist, is committed to bringing the experience of immersive (or 3D) sound to the world because he believes it will revolutionize the listening experience. 3D sound – which captures audio from different positions and gives a 360-degree ‘ambisonic’ recording – is the future. The transition from mono to stereo took place in the late 1950s and Ozark Henry is working toward the next milestone.
Maps to the Stars is the name he gives to his immersive sound performances. He travels the world, meeting young musicians, choirs and artists and also visiting universities to teach them about this technique. Through immersive sound, Music has the ability to activate the senses in deeper ways, allowing one to experience a live performance even after it has taken place. Ozark Henry’s goal is to make 3D sound accessible to humanity.
