After a brilliant relaunch in November, Encore drinks is back with another chance for Encore members to grab a beer, mingle and learn from music industry leaders.
This month we'll be discussing the influence of technology on the future of the music industry, and we are delighted to be welcoming two industry-leading panellists to our event:
Jean-Baptiste Thiebaut (ROLI)
Jean-Baptiste Thiebaut is Director of Developer Products and Partnerships at ROLI, where he oversees developer engagement, the cross-platform framework JUCE and the Audio Developer Conference. Prior to joining ROLI in 2012, Jean-Baptiste was Innovation Manager at Focusrite, and founded in 2011 the Music Hackspace, a collective of artists and engineers passionate about music, as a place to exchange, learn and develop music technology projects.
Henrik Oppermann (Visualise)
Henrik Oppermann is Head of Sound at Visualise. A leading 3D sound specialist, Henrik brings with him over 10 years’ experience of recording studio quality audio on location for film, advertising, music industry clients and 3D sound installations. Since joining the studio in 2014, Henrik has worked on over 40 virtual reality projects, capturing binaural audio in a number of challenging environments, including low flying military aircraft, Formula 1 race cars, refugee camps, mountain peaks and concert halls around the world. An expert in his field, Henrik has developed hardware and software audio applications for VR collaboration with leading sound partners, to deliver the best possible immersive sound.
Henrik sees the 360 image as a score for interactive soundscapes and has developed a number of unique workflows to deliver the best possible immersive sound experiences.
We are also delighted to be welcoming Mimi as a special guest, who will be demoing their advanced hearing technology after the panel.
To end, we'll open up the floor for Encore members to share any projects with which they need help, advice or collaborators.
