I was at a radio and digital technologies event at the BBC last week, and had the opportunity to speak with audio research engineer Anthony Churnside in the busy Radio Theatre cafe. As soon as we started to talk about what he does for a living, we ran into sematic difficulties.

What’s radio? What’s broadcasting? What’s quality? What’s an audience?

Anthony is at the cutting edge of what’s possible with sound – and pulls back the curtain on what’s in development. Forget 5.1 – 22.2 surround sound anyone?
