My guest today is my friend Joel Douek. We were introduced to each other through our common friend Kevin Perlmutter. They got to know each other at Man Made Music, the top US Sonic Branding studio, where Joel is the Creative Director & Chief Scientist.

Born in London, England, now living in Los Angeles, Joel draws heavily on his background in music and neuroscience to guide & innovate the use of sound to bring meaning, realism and emotions in audiovisual. His talent has made him an award-winning composer, sound designer and instrumentalist whose music has underscored many films, television productions and documentaries. Millions recognize his music, which has brought many scenes to life, features such as the BAFTA-winning film ‘Flying Monsters 3D’ the Everest adventure: “The Wildest Dream”, and dark thrillers such as “Manhattan Night”, and “The Tall Man.”   Including in some of the most prestigious documentaries of the last few years – those of Sir David Attenborough.

Joel is also the co-founder of EccoVR bringing many VR & AR experiences to life through the power of music. Plus he is one of the elected officers, VP, of “The Society of Composers & Lyricists” making sure that artists and musicians are fairly paid. Artist like Quincy Jones, Hans Zimmer and many others also sit on the advisory board. Read more about them on www.thescl.com

In this episode, Joel and I discuss the ins and outs of how ECCO VR is harnessing the future of music by designing high-end spatialized, positionally aware sound and music in VR/AR marketing.
