The Spacepod is a chamber that projects auditory architecture around a listener. Using an omnidirectional array of speakers, it produces a sensation of auditory surfaces using ambisonic localization, psychoacoustic cues, and parametric mapping. Effectively, one finds oneself navigating by ear a world in which every surface is covered in sound-emitting pores. The Spacepod functions as a sort of spacecraft that sends the listener flying through auditory spaces that would be impossible or prohibitive to construct physically, without any of the constraints of bodily mass.
