Binaural audio is also known as 3D audio and it's intended for Headphone listening!

It is an obsession of mine, (and soon to be yours I hope!) so here you'll find links to various articles explaining what it is, and content (besides my own) which I find interesting.

Click on the pictures for links to two pieces of mine that use binaural audio (and don't forget your headphones!): 'A day in the lifecycle' and 'Amplify Beach'. If you like those, check out, 'Billboards Everywhere'.

Remember, that binaural does not sound super-produced, in order to preserve that natural-feel. You're in control! Use your volume knobs!
