Do it with your eyes closed

I would be completely abdicating my responsibilities to this blog if I didn’t share this with you.

It’s called the Virtual Barbershop (via GorillaMask).  I have no idea who made it or what it’s selling, if it’s selling anything at all.  But I’ve listening to it probably 5 or 6 times today, and will likely do so a few more times before bed.

Just note, they say you must be listening to the audio clip through headphones.  Follow those instructions – don’t cheat.  And do yourself a favor and close your eyes, too.  It’s deeply unsettling.  The sounds not only have a location (which isn’t all that new – that’s basic stereo), they also have DEPTH!  It’s a lot of fun.  You probably won’t see this done as elegantly anywhere else.

Note:  The file may stop playing after Manuel introduces himself.  Just hit Play again.


Update:  Cetera, Luigi’s sexily whispered word at the end, refers to the Cetera algorithm, often used in hearing aid technology.  That solves that problem.

A thousand times Yes “Blogging the summer” returns. Sigh.

    I cheated and didn’t listen through headphones and it was still pretty trippy

It's mostly a collection of sweet links and copious amounts of talk talk talk. I like it more and more every day. And yes, even the ugly blue/green color scheme is not without a certain charm.
