#11: A Movie For The Ears: BMW’s Hypnopolis

This week, Greg Sikora, Director, Acoustic Systems Engineering at HARMAN, Cora Güntert, Digital Audio and Voice Strategy at BMW and Nicholas Nowottny, Executive Music Producer at Whitehorse Music, join us to talk about the art of audio storytelling and to dive into the world of Hypnopolis, BMW’s thrilling new sci-fi podcast. In addition, we will discover why the car is the ideal stage to enjoy not only music but also a good audiobook.

What is Hypnopolis and what makes it a movie for the ears? How important is sound design to create an audio story that captivates? Why are audiobooks the ideal companion for driving and how is a car audio system best tuned for spoken word content?

We’ll answer all of these questions and a whole lot more in this episode of Audio Matters.
