Technology has long been available to record and reproduce music in more perceptually satisfactory ways than stereo. With "immersive", excellent performances can be preserved more sentiently, also for future generations to enjoy. As "stereo" is becoming a playback option, we will discuss new recording techniques, discrimination between immersion and envelopment, and how the ideals of music reproduction may differ from those of film and drama. The workshop includes audio examples, so, for the best listening experience, please join wearing good around-ear headphones. AKG K240 are recommended for some of the examples.
