The Audience Is Listening

Table of Contents

We are frequently asked for the playlist that our audience is listening to when monitoring our Aural Sculptures. Well, first of all it is always the favorite music of the individual on our sofa and consequently a widely diverse selection across all genres, artists and eras.

However, we are trying to maintain a certain range of popular music pieces that many people know. These music pieces are not necessarily of extraordinary recording quality. It is rather more important that our audience has a certain pre-conditioning and expectation about the sound of these pieces. So you can truly realize the difference made by an Aural Sculpture in comparison to what you are used to.

And here, for fun, some of the most popular albums in our audience – not exhaustive and subject to daily change, of course…
