Other Worlds is an innovative binaural music project that explores the fusion of electronic and acoustic sounds, resulting in a seamless blend of both elements. It offers a captivating and immersive musical experience for listeners, characterized by its contemplative nature.
This project delves into non-conventional musical territory, while maintaining a surprisingly accessible appeal. The music can serve as a functional and meditative background, while also providing intricate complexity and detail to engage curious listeners.
Aesthetically, Other Worlds aims to unite and cross-pollinate diverse musical traditions, creating new imaginary and immersive sonic landscapes. The listener is enveloped and surrounded by an ever-evolving, organic soundscape that transports them to a “sonically different” world.
Rather than focusing on a specific genre, sound design technique, or instrumentation, the project emphasizes the harmonious fusion of electronic sounds, field recordings, and a variety of acoustic instruments within a three-dimensional space. It draws musical inspiration from the pioneering work of Jon Hassell, while incorporating the latest advancements in digital spatialization technologies.
The first volume of Other Worlds was released to critical acclaim in May 2020, receiving positive reviews from specialized media outlets. In November 2020, the project was awarded a grant from Musikfonds e.V. through the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media (BKM) as part of the NEUSTART KULTUR recovery program to support the production of the second volume.
Other Worlds Vol. 2, which builds upon the success of its predecessor, was released in April 2021 and showcased as part of the virtual hybrid edition of the internationally renowned digital arts festival, MUTEK ES+AR 2021.
