For the 45th BoG, I invited Argentinian producer Alejandro Mosso over to discuss his fantastic new release Other Worlds, optimized for binaural listening. He also provided an exclusive mix of the album, which you can hear in the 2nd half of the show.

Two years in the making and taking advantage of the latest technologies in 3D binaural audio, Other Worlds provides the listener with four immersive and hypnotic pieces of music exclusively designed for headphone listening. Each composition offers a seamless blend of electronic and acoustic instruments merging into a slow and organic pulse.
Musically inspired on Jon Hassell’s Fourth World series, this new side-project by Alejandro Mosso adds a technological twist to the tradition of imagining non-existent musical worlds. Carving into decades of experience in electronic music production and into his recent endeavours in sound installation art and advanced spatialisation technologies, Alejandro delivers a non-conventional record, yet surprisingly accessible. Music that can work as a functional and meditative background, while also offering enough complexity and detail to reward the most curious listeners.
* Binaural audio is a 3D sound format for headphones, where sound sources are spatialised simulating a 360° sphere around the listener. Sounds can not only be perceived left or right like in traditional stereo, but from above, below, front, back, and every possible angle. In order to experience the record correctly, please listen with high quality headphones (preferably over-ear), in a quiet environment and with closed eyes.
