What is the objective of this workshop?

The workshop aims to demystify music production in Dolby Atmos, allowing participants to start their immersive projects in their own studios, with a view to potential commercial distribution.

The workshop will be divided into two parts, including a theoretical component and a practical component where participants will be able to mix their own compositions in PHI's sound studio. We will explore current techniques and best practices of the technology and consider how immersive sound can amplify the emotional and narrative impact of a musical composition.

At the end of the workshop, participants will have a collective listening session of their work in Habitat Sonore, the PHI Centre's immersive listening room.

What can you expect from the workshop?

It is important to note that this workshop specifically focuses on the application of immersive audio concepts in the context of Dolby Atmos.

  • 2 theory sessions: Wednesday & Thursday from 6 PM to 10 PM

  • 2 practical sessions: Saturday & Sunday from 11 AM to 7 PM

  • 1 listening and conclusion session: Sunday at 7 PM
