I am currently conducting my dissertation which involves development of a realistic surround sound mixing technique over conventional surround sound techniques. However my key research question is "Would realistic surround sound with real life surround elements break suspension of disbelief?".
This require me into research into conventional Surround sound mixing techniques for films. however I am finding it difficult to source the right resources on current and conventional spatial mixing techniques. Would anyone have an idea as to which books I should refer to?
This research is focussing on the creative aspect of surround sound rather than the technical aspect of it. Taking into consideration the suspension of disbelief is a primary factor in creating spatial soundscapes. I am trying to develop a technique which includes the placement of foleys, incidentals and more organic elements of a sound design in surround array of speakers.
Any help would be much appreciated.
