Envelop is a non-profit that amplifies the power of music through immersive audio venues and open source spatial audio software.
We believe that immersive experiences of sound and music connect and inspire people on a deeper level, creating shared moments of fully-activated intentional listening. Through Envelop venues, powered by our software Envelop for Live, we host a diversity of events ranging from spatial music performances and listening events, to wellness and 3D audio education. With 32 or more speakers surrounding the audience, Envelop venues allow us to be within the music.
Envelop is directed by artist/musician Christopher Willits, with board members Roddy Lindsay, artist/DJ Mark Slee, fabricator Greg Wood, and creative director Alingo Loh.
Sgt. Pepper's is a cornerstone of 20th century music, both culturally and technically. Named the top album in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and often considered the 1960's counterculture movement incarnate, our LISTEN series would not be complete without this legendary piece. During the recording of the album The Beatles furthered the technological progression they had made with their album Revolver, adopting an increasingly experimental approach to composition and recording. At this album listening we are sharing the 50th anniversary remaster that the original producer, Sir George Martin, worked on and created into a surround sound mix.
We have upmixed the 6 channel surround mix using our open source software, Envelop for Live, to create a fully immersive 32 speaker experience that allows you to literally be within the music.
Enter from the Michigan St side of the building. Doors close 15 min after start time.
