Many orchestras and conductors are aware of the problem: that nagging feeling that _ even though a concert appears to have been very successful _ the gorgeous sound, brilliant interpretation and musical energy may not have reached the audience in their full glory.
There is a real sense that the acoustics of many concert halls are not as good as they could be and that better sound quality could enrich audiences' appreciation of the music and its interpretation. A good solution to this problem would enhance successful musical performances and make concerts more attractive for the public.
The acoustics of some auditoria have suffered from refurbishment work intended to make them better suited for other types of event. In other cases, a building may have been subsequently altered specifically with the intention of improving its acoustics, although with only partial success and without the hoped for outstanding sound quality. Some halls, of course, are simply too small to produce a „huge“ acoustic effect and they may in fact have been built in such a way that even the use of acoustic sails fails to create the required reflections.
Building work to improve a room's acoustics is usually very expensive. What is more, it is usually impossible to predict in advance precisely how successful such work will be; indeed, some of the desired effects are in any case impossible to achieve by these means.
The acoustic shaping concept presented here could be the solution for your concert hall as well:
