alt-J has announced that their two sold out Royal Albert Hall shows later this month will be immersive sound performances using a surround speaker system to cover the entire audience – the first concerts to utilise the technology in the UK.
The shows will feature L-Acoustics’ L-ISA immersive hyperreal sound which goes beyond traditional stereo to create a more multidimensional and natural experience. Speakers will be placed throughout the venue to dynamically position sound effects mixed into a variety of the band’s material to create an immersive sound experience.
alt-J first utilised the technology at a special, one-off show at New York’s Forest Hills Stadium in the summer:
The Royal Albert Hall shows (29-30 October) are the final dates of alt-J’s upcoming UK tour in support of their album RELAXER and its recently released counterpart project REDUXER.
