test description
Alan Dower Blumlein was a pioneering electronics engineer who sought a more immersive listening experience, leading to the creation of stereo sound recordings. \n\nBlumlein decided to explore binaural sound after a disappointing trip to the cinema. He noticed that the actors movements on screen did not match the recorded sound, which stayed in one place. \n\nIn 1931 he filed a ground-breaking patent which set out the basis for modern stereo sound technology. This was one of 128 patents that he filed. Patent 394325 covered seventy individual claims relating to recording stereo and stereo sound.\n\nBlumlein made several experimental binaural (stereo) recordings to test the new system. On 19 January 1934 the London Philharmonic Orchestra played a part of Mozart s Jupiter Symphony at the Abbey Road Studios, which was recorded onto this shellac record.
