Enrico Sangiuliano in Dolby Atmos

Suppose you were in and around Amsterdam last October. In that case, you couldn’t avoid it: Amsterdam Dance Event, where the city was buzzing, celebrating electronic music in full force! With a multitude of parties as part of the festival, workshops and seminars as part of the conference and several side events, it was better than ever before. In addition, we organised a series of electronic music-related events in partnership with some of our close friends and new contacts from our extended network.

Enrico Sangiuliano NINETOZERO

One of the highlights was the listening session with the talented techno producer, performer and sound designer Enrico Sangiuliano. Enrico is undoubtedly one of the most influential artists in the Techno genre, and his work is globally recognised. Known for his unique sound identity in his music, he is often seen as one of the most authentic and balanced artists in electronic music.

After a period of rest and reflection during Covid lockdowns, plunging into sound design and production exploration, Enrico announced the launch of his 10-chapter, transient record label NINETOZERO earlier this year. Enrico explains, “I started a new project called NINETOZERO, which is a temporary label, and it will release 10 times, counting down from nine to zero and then disappear. The idea of having a temporary label comes from bringing importance to music in a world where music is over-released and there’s not enough focus on what’s actually happening. Plus, I want to tell a story, and I want to tell it in chapters.”

This unique journey started with the Silence EP, NTZ009, which contains 4 tracks and reached #1 position on Beatport’s charts. Then, right before ADE’22, Enrico released chapter 8, called ‘Sound of Space, NTZ008’, where we find Sangiuliano exploring the effects of space and physical surroundings on our experience of music. For this EP, Enrico decided to mix the tracks in Dolby Atmos, making it available in spatial audio, and providing listeners with an immersive 360-degree infiltration of sound.

Sound Of Space release event

To celebrate the release of the NTZ008 Sound Of Space, Enrico and his team, Abbey Road Institute, and Dolby Atmos hosted an intimate listening session, allowing a happy few to experience the Sound Of Space in full immersive sound. Abbey Road Institute Amsterdam’s Studio 1 is Dolby Atmos Certified as one of the first educational institutes in Europe, making it the perfect location for this event.

Enrico Sangiuliano’s fans, industry friends, and Abbey Road Institute Amsterdam students and alums were invited to join the release party and listening sessions. During short sessions in Studio 1, Enrico gave a personal introduction to each group, talking about the tracks, explaining the concept and guiding them through an immersive audio experience.

After the intimate listening sessions, participants gathered in our large live room for a Q&A, with fans from all over the world asking questions and Enrico sharing some of his personal stories and experiences.
