1. I Don’t Know’ from La Trimouille
This song was recorded at the University of Surrey and it features Peter and Kerry singing the song I Don’t Know’ from La Trimouille. It was recorded using the Cortex Manikin Mk2 Binaural Head and Torso Simulator which is an extremely accurate binaural microphone.

There’s A Mountain is a beautiful song which is sung and played by Swimming and Dallas Simpson. This session was recorded live with binaural equipment and the results speak for themselves. Credit to Dallas Simpson for sharing it over at Gearspace.
3. Akhian Udeekdian – Sumkali live in Michigan
This is an incredible binaural live performance by the band Sumkali! It was performed at The Ark venue in Michigan, and the band is from the same area. The song Akhian Udeekdian is such an interesting listen, and it the binaural effect is done so marvelously well.

The background track of this ad is a superb example of binaural audio done right. You can really feel the sense of space, and there are some really cool sound effects inserted every now and then. This composition is mindblowing! I recommend you close your eyes when you listen to it.

Hooke Audio has produced countless binaural recordings, and here comes one which I think many will enjoy. It’s a recording of Matt Sucich playing his song “My Only Problem With You” and it’s shot at The Cathedral of Junk, Austin, TX.
10. Air – Cherry Blossom Girl (Binaural Live)
Air is a French duo which produces music in the genres dream pop, space pop and chill-out. Many of their songs are instrumental, but I choose this Cherry Blossom one because it has such a rare sound to it. Just enjoy it for what it is.
