New ‘360 Sessions’ transforms live performances for HiFi users

Spatial audio listening featuring the world’s biggest artists in Sony 360 Reality Audio

Virtual shows aren’t the only way to experience a live performance at home. Global audio streaming service, Deezer is bringing all your favorite live performances to life with our new  “360 Sessions. Now you can feel like you’re in front of the stage with our exclusive Deezer Sessions playlist. Global megastars like Dua Lipa, Anne-Marie, Circa Waves and others play exclusively for Deezer fans. Music fans can now live or relive each moment in Sony 360 Reality Audio. 

Using Sony’s 360 object-based spatial audio technology, our 28 track playlist provides you with the unique immersive experience. This means everything from the track – including vocals, individual instruments and even a live audience can be heard as if they are in different positions inside a 360 spherical space. The end result is an incredible feeling of ‘realness’, as if the artist is inside the same room as you.

“We wanted to capture the magic and mood of a live performance with Deezer Sessions. Each act brings our fans up close and personal to their favorite artists. To further preserve the integrity and specialness of each recording, we created ‘Deezer 360 Sessions’ in 360 Reality Audio. With 360 Reality Audio, fans will experience sounds that mimic an omni-directional soundscape that will transport each music fan to the heart of their favorite performance,” said Jerome Coïc, Deezer’s Senior Special Operations & Partnerships Manager.
