AUDITORIUM DESIGN
HOW WELL SOMETHING TRANSMITS & REFLECTS SOUND

Auditorium, multipurpose room and performance space acoustics

A state-of-the-art approach to refurbishment or development of new performance spaces.

Auditorium, multipurpose room and performance space acoustics are unique and complex because many different elements are required of a space for differing scenarios. The speech, vocal and or instrumental music all need something different.

If staging a production, the cast may have to shout, or whisper, or a combination of both depending where they are on-stage. For musical or vocal production, is the acoustic too dry (too short reverebation time) or too wet (too long reverberation time)? Are there areas within the space that are ideal (acoustic-sweet-spot) to sit, while others (excessive revereration) are to be avoided at all cost?

In any enclosed space there is sound distortion due to the particular characteristics of the room. Certain frequencies, called resonance frequencies, are amplified much more than other frequencies and can severely distort sound. Design techniques range from the standard and basic acoustic reverberation time analysis and calculations, up to the most advance cutting edge and state-of-the-art acoustic modelling, simulation and real-life sound auralisation.
