Envelop
Envelop is a non-profit organization that amplifies the social and emotional impact of music through immersive listening spaces and open source spatial audio software.
Envelop allows us to listen and create music in the same way that we naturally experience the world, in three dimensions. This heightened experience of sound and music can be heard within one of Envelop’s sound spaces (Envelop at The Midway and Envelop Satellite), home or studio spatial audio systems, and even normal headphones. Envelop’s software can also be used with virtual reality and augmented reality platforms. Envelop is providing access to a richer and more natural experience of sound and music, and with that experience comes greater shared moments of intentional listening, inspiration, empathy, and wonder.

Envelop is directed by Christopher Willits, Roddy Lindsay, Alingo Loh, Greg Wood, and Mark Slee.
