New Web Site On Michael Gerzon, Surround Pioneer

This morning on the sursound mailing list I read about a nice new web site detailing the life of the late Michael Gerzon.

Michael Gerzon is a mathematician and pioneer in surround sound theory. He invented the Ambisonic approach to accurately recording an acoustic event. His theories and techniques were a topic of profound interest to me while I was in College.

Now that I’m older, and better funded, I find that I’m revisiting surround sound and specifically Ambisonics as an aspect of planning for my forthcoming home theater installation.
