Projects

Ongoing

In collaboration with Apple and an amazing team, we have created a unique Spatial Audio experience for Apple's new ecosystem.

With Odio for visionOS, you can create your own spatial soundscape within your visionOS environment. Using unique ornaments, each with its own composed mini soundscape, you can create your ambient sound ensemble for an optimal spatial computing session.

Ongoing

The Apple Design Award-winning iOS app is still in development. We are adding a new Composer mode that allows the listener to become a composer. Users can import and arrange their sound files within a Spatial Audio playground. This work can then be shared with other listeners, and we may even choose to include it in our catalog.

Ongoing
Labyrint Soundscape App at Rebelbass Foundation

For the Rebelbass foundation, in collaboration with Albert van Abbe, I am creating an immersive Spatial Audio experience. In memory of Lady Aïda, a labyrinth has been created in the Philips de Jongh park.

An app is in development for this labyrinth, providing a spatial soundscape during the walk, exclusively composed for the labyrinth. The soundscape follows the walk, and with Apple hardware (AirPods Pro or Max), it feels as if the sound is coming from certain locations inside and outside the labyrinth.

Odio for Apple Vision Pro is a completely re-imagined audio visual experience for spatial computing. It enables users to enrich their environment with Odio spatial audio ornaments, emitters of rich spatial audio soundscapes.

Each Odio ornament is a focal point for an immersive auditory experience, creating a personal aura of sound that complements and enhances the user’s environment. Whether for relaxation, focus or simply enjoyment of a unique auditory backdrop, these ornaments bring a new level of customization to personal spaces.

Crafted exclusively for Apple Vision Pro, soundscapes comes alive with exquisite visuals by HyperCulture, providing a harmonious audio visual blend.

Soundscapes seamlessly adapt to the user's surroundings, ensuring a natural and lifelike audio experience, thanks to Apple Vision Pro’s cutting-edge ray-tracing audio technology.

Odio for visionOS offers a unique and enriching experience. It's more than an app – it's a journey into a world where sound is an integral part of the sensory environment.

Together with Duux we designed and built their mobile experience and backend for their indoor climate IoT platform. Build from the ground up as a more flexible and sustainable alternative to their previous generation platform, they now have the foundation for years to come. Allowing effortless control of their devices as well as providing the means for a perfect indoor climate and energy insights.

2021

The audio app Odio delivers incredibly lifelike ambient sounds — waterfalls, rushing rivers, lush electronic washes — made even more realistic with Spatial Audio and head tracking. Soundscapes can be customized by manipulating their mixes through a captivating circular interface, and each one is accompanied by futuristic fluid animations that unfold in perfect synchronicity with the sound. It’s a truly amplified take on the audiovisual experience.

When designing soundscapes for apps and games, the right notes can make all the difference. And when those notes are built to support multichannel audio, they might even turn someone’s head. (Literally.)

Endel and Odio are just two of the many apps and games taking advantage of Spatial Audio. They use multichannel mixes, Core Audio, and AVFoundation to add texture and dimensionality, creating resonating surround-sound experiences that further immerse listeners into the world within their apps.
