Climbing with binaural sound

Climbing with binaural sound – 2012 06, Fontainebleau, FR

The two films below are made with a camera on the forehead and at each ear a microphone. The soundtrack is because of the placement of the microphones a binaural sound recording. Listening with headphone reveals the sound directions, this is the most true to nature sound reproduction possible (3D sound!). The point of view of the picture is equal to that of the sound, the direction of both is in these films inextricably related to each other witch gives a extreme good identification with the observer.

I made this recordings during a boulder (climbing) vacation with Erik Holthuijsen in Fontainebleau, France. This is a Forest with low rock formations from release sandstone layer, 1 hour south of Paris.
