Concert Hall Acoustics

Document Thumbnail

[Feature] In this month’s back-of-the-book feature article our staff writer, Francis Rumsey, reports on some of the views expressed in a recent AES workshop concerned with concert hall acoustics. This is a topic that nearly always gives rise to passionate opinions, but as Barry Blesser points out, our preference for certain hall acoustics is strongly determined by cultural and learned biases. We also learn about the acoustical characteristics of halls that are considered good for pop music performance.
