Jean-Yves Münch is a French-American sound recording engineer. In his early career, he worked as a location sound mixer for feature films. He then went on to travel the world, working primarily on zooethno documentaries. In 2005, Münch began his ongoing position as principal recording engineer of the Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra, with whom he has recorded hundreds of performances, for both the orchestra and their world-class soloists. He moved to Montréal in 2013, where he discovered the burgeoning world of immersive media at the Société des Arts Technologiques (SAT), where he worked on full-dome experiences, utilizing a 156-speaker setup for features inside the Satosphere. He also started working with the early creators of VR films, mastering the spatial-audio-postproduction workflow. He continues to work on numerous VR projects today. Münch currently resides in Columbus, Ohio where he works as principal location and sound mixer for Felix & Paul Studio, which has taken him everywhere from Baikonur, Kazakhstan to President Obama in the White House. In collaboration with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and SAV+R team, Jean-Yves Münch's research focuses on developing recording strategies and authoring tools for 6DOF audio.
