In a workshop with Ross Flight YAK got an introduction to Binaural Sound Effects for Immersive Storytelling.

Ross demonstrated how particular recording techniques can be used to create both realistic and abstract environments, locations, atmospherics and sound effects to enhance narrative and storytelling, and this is the outcome of a few experiments made by YAK.
