The Antfood team had augmented Fritz – a premiere binaural head-shaped microphone – with a headdress made of two additional sets of 3Dio stereo ears. Recording with this mega-microphone captures a very detailed sound of the train car from six sides. For Blackout, this allows the viewer to hear every part of the symphony of the train car in 3D. Anything Fritz heard, you'll hear in amazing fidelity – if there's a cough to your left, your mind tells you there's someone over there (and they're having respiratory issues.) We recorded everything from the rumble of the undercarriage below you, to the ever-unintelligible announcements over the PA to the hiss of the doors closing next to your ear. When you look to the left in the Blackout train, the aural space adjusts appropriately to match your physical position. It’s uncanny how well it works.
