Björk at MoMA features Dysonics’ motion-tracking audio technology
Everyone at Dysonics is thrilled to announce that RondoMotion — the world’s first wireless motion sensor for headphones — is being integrated into “Songlines,” the immersive audio section of the Björk exhibition at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, March 7 through June 7, 2015.
Björk: The Exhibition
Björk is a retrospective that draws from more than 20 years of the artist’s daring and innovative career. It offers audiences an experience of music in many layers, including: instruments, a theatrical presentation, an immersive sound experience, a focused audio guide, and related visualizations.
RondoMotion: The Technology
RondoMotion attaches easily to any over-the-ear headphones, immersing listeners in a reactive, dynamic audio environment. Björk attendees will wear Bowers & Wilkins headphones equipped with a RondoMotion sensor. They will enter a 360° motion-tracked audio environment that syncs with striking visual elements as they move throughout the exhibit’s “Songlines” section.
“Accurately tracking listener head movement with RondoMotion allowed our team to create a new level of immersion and engagement for listeners experiencing the Björk ‘Songlines’ psychoacoustic augmented audio installation at MoMA.”
– Andrew Melchior, Björk “Songlines” project collaborator
“We often describe our technology as the virtual reality of audio. So naturally, we’re thrilled to help bring Björk’s exquisite art to life for this interactive exhibition,” said Dysonics CTO Robert Dalton. “Hearing sound change relative to your head movement, just like it does in a real space, results in a groundbreaking, fully immersive audio experience that puts you there.”
