Competition: How does Switzerland sound in 3D?

As part of the International Year of Sound 2020+ and on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the Swiss Acoustical Society SGA-SSA is looking for the most impressive binaural 3D sound recording. We are asking for short binaural (artificial head) 3D sound recordings of real Swiss soundscapes or of musical performances with a duration of 1½ to 6 minutes, illustrated with video or still image.
