Working with Google, Oculus, Baobob, and Dolby, among others, Pollen has pioneered new ways of enhancing the VR experience with sounds that surround you, react to your movement, and when needed, tug at the heart.
Duet is a virtual reality story animated by Glen Keane and produced by Google Spotlight Stories. Pollen created a haunting custom score and working closely with Google developers, guided the implementation of the sound engine within the VR app for Android and iOs.WatchLEARN MORE
Pollen and Google's ATAP developed a new spherical sound engine, the first of its kind for a mobile app, which allowed a completely immersive sonic experience. The sounds surround the listener in a sonic sphere that accompanies the immersive video and reacts to the listeners motions within this virtual space.MORE

"Pollen made Pearl possible. Where else could you find, in one place, such knowledge, craft, talent and uncompromising commitment for the best sound and music? At its heart, Pearl is the original song by Alexis Harte and JJ Wiesler. From the sensitive collaboration with the director, crafting words and music, through the selection of artists, the recording and production, to the innovative spatial rendering, creating an experience that truly moves audiences; Pollen did it all flawlessly.

"You've got some great songs and I'll do em 'the best I know how!"
Working with Pollen has been a great experience. They are very creative team that delivered great audio on brief in a timely manner. The best part of the experience is the partnership we developed and care they put into the work. We shifted gears mid project and they helped us work through concepts and ideas that inspired the overall work. A great combination of talent with technical expertise.
“Scot Stafford may be the most versatile composer I have ever worked with, he and his team at Pollen Music Group are pioneers. They lift high their craft and deliver not only virtuoso writing and talent but are able to collaborate on the highest technical level imaginable. What Scot did for ‘Duet’ is nothing short of miraculous.”
