About Above & Beyond

Above & Beyond has been produced by Tom Adams with supporting musicians Lillian Henley and Dan Scott. The podcast is recorded in a unique way using binaural audio, a method of recording that reproduces the way humans naturally experience sound.

Part of the ongoing Headphone Story podcast series, Above & Beyond has been commissioned by the CICRP and is available wherever you get your podcasts.
