I’m proud to be the spatial audio consultant and ambisonic mixer for this AR music experience by Childish Gambino. We teamed up with Google, Unity, and MediaMonks to make something special for fans.

Built in Unity and using Google ARCore and Cloud Anchors to allow shared multiplayer AR, this app lets multiple people experience the same musical AR world simultaneously on different devices.

On the audio side, you unlock hidden spatialized bits of the song, instrument by instrument, at the beginning of the experience. We later launch into a full ambisonic mix of the track, so you get a stable surround soundfield of the music all around you even as you move your AR position and view. This is much more than just a 360 video over a stereo music track, check it out free on iOS and Android.
