I visited a friend’s blog today to discover some amazing news about the newest Radiohead cd which is set to release later this year. here’s what green plastic had to say about the mannequin head shown in this picture of Thom York in his studio:
“it’s actually a rarely used form of recording technology called “Binaural Recording”. microphones are built into a fake head made of material that mimics how soundwaves pass through the human body. the two main openings, the ear canals, create an exact replication of how humans hear the sounds in real life. basically, on the new album, you’ll be hearing some of the tracks, mainly piano, as if Thom was playing it in the same room as you.”
incredible. thanks for the update T!
