Welcome to episode #11 of HARMAN’s weekly podcast, Audio Matters, dedicated to all things audio. Every Thursday, Audio Matters brings together a diverse group of audio experts who join host Oisin Lunny to present fun, relevant, entertaining information on a variety of music and audio topics for listeners everywhere.

This week, Greg Sikora, Director, Acoustic Systems Engineering at HARMAN, Cora Güntert, Digital Audio and Voice Strategy at BMW and Nicholas Nowottny, Executive Music Producer at Whitehorse Music, join us to talk about the art of audio storytelling and to dive into the world of Hypnopolis, BMW’s thrilling new sci-fi podcast. In addition, we will discover why the car is the ideal stage to enjoy not only music but also a good audio book.


What is Hypnopolis and what makes it a movie for the ears? How important is sound design to create an audio story that captivates? Why are audiobooks the ideal companion for driving and how is a car audio system best tuned for spoken word content?

We’ll answer all of these questions and a whole lot more in this episode of Audio Matters. Available below as well as on Podigee and all major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, TuneIn, and Deezer.



Make sure to check out the specially curated playlist for this episode here on TIDAL.


Thanks for tuning in, and please join us again next week for our last episode of Audio Matters before the summer break. In the grand finale of season one of our podcast we will discuss the importance of small music venues for the musical heart of cities, how the music scene is developing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and what the future may hold.
