Dezeen Music Project exclusive: binaural mix
of Woven Ancestry by Max Cooper

To mark the release of his debut album Human, which came out last week, techno producer Max Cooper has exclusively shared a binaural mix with us, which features the new album’s lead track Woven Ancestry.

Binaural recordings create a 3D sound experience: music seems to come from multiple different directions, as if you were sitting in the room with the musicians. The effect only works if you’re listening with headphones, though. So put on a pair of cans, close your eyes, and immerse yourself in the music!

The mix, which was recorded live and also features the tracks Meadows and Gravity Well, was created using 4DSOUND, a rig consisting of 48 speakers arranged in 16 columns, which allows producers to spatially design the sounds within tracks. You can watch a video of Cooper explaining the project here.

Dezeen Music Project: Phantoms
by K H U S H I

Here's a brand new track by east London musician K H U S H I, set to be the lead track on the singer/songwriter's forthcoming debut EP.

Phantoms is a slow-burning, wistful pop song packed with lush vocal harmonies and delicate keyboard lines, which builds up masterfully to a driving, rhythmic crescendo.

K H U S H I enlisted the in-demand talents of Alt-J's producer Charlie Andrews to record the track, which suggests his short musical career is very much on an upwards trajectory.

You can listen to K H U S H I's debut single Magpie here.
