I love this app’s spatial audio 8D soundscapes, except for one horrifying one

Want to kick back and relax as someone rustles up a virtual feast just for you, with all of the juicy scrunches, scrapes and snips that this might entail (peeling potatoes, sharpening knives, firing up the hob, chomping on a bit of leftover veg), while you pour yourself a nice (albeit also virtual) glass of wine? How about walking through London’s Borough Market, dodging traffic as traders on either side of the road try to sell you their wares? Or how about escaping to a cabin in the woods only to realize you’re not alone – and that your additional house guest upstairs might not be human? Or (and this is perhaps the most terrifying) have you ever wondered what being buried alive might sound like, as the earth piles up around you? Well, imagine no more – Ammersive is here.  Unlike the best music streaming services out there, Ammersive (opens in new tab)’s spatial audio content comprises not songs, tracks and albums, but unique immersive audio curations from sound engineers, music producers and voice artists, all of which take listeners on various aural journeys into different realms, ideas and concepts.  Ammersive’s co-founders, Jamie Bell and Sam Addadahine, fell in love with 3D/8D music one night on YouTube, listening to the Virtual Barber Shop (opens in new tab), a sonic curation (made back in 1996) which they both believe is still one of the most incredible audio experiences‍ ever created.
