In the Philharmonie Berlin, the unique sound of the Berliner Philharmoniker meets an important component of the musical experience: space. It is precisely this spatial experience that we want you to feel directly.
We achieve this by recreating the spatiality of the auditorium with a complex algorithm when mixing the sound signal. And since every musical work has a different line-up and the instrumental groups are not always seated in the same place on stage, we create each mix with individual parameters for each individual work.
An important role is played here by an upmix process specially adapted to the Philharmonie Berlin, which was developed by sound engineer Benedikt Schröder and, in collaboration with Andreas Wolf, is used to mix the concerts in the Digital Concert Hall. This then converts the concert recordings in stereo into Dolby Atmos 7.1.4.
The new Immersive Audio sound format is available at no extra cost.
