Abstract

There are many technologies available to record and reproduce audio. In this research we focus on the differences in the extent of immersion in an experimental setting between stereo and ambisonic sound. The participants watched a movie of a dance performed during Noorderzon, a festival in Groningen, the Netherlands, and were provided with either one of the two sound reproduction methods, after which they filled in a questionnaire. Their answers were compared to the answers of our control group, people who watched the dance at Noorderzon itself. Our hypothesis was that people listening to ambisonic sound would have a higher level of immersion and would therefore respond more similar to our control group than people who had listened to stereo sound. The results did not reveal what we expected. However, some results have been found indicating a difference between the answers of the group who had listened to stereo and those who had listened to ambisonic sound.
