Acoustical design is very much like music composition: both are inherently mathematical and artistic. Until the mid 2000’s, studios were trapezoidal amalgamations of architectural and acoustic geometries brimming with sonic standards of the day: saw-toothed/sloping walls, multi-planar speaker soffits, bass traps, suspended clouds, Helmholtz resonators, quadratic diffusors, etcetera, etcetera. Yet all too often imaging, intelligibility, and clarity fell prey to economy and aesthetics. Artists, producers, and engineers alike were reduced to sharing a one foot square sweet spot in even the most prestigious studio facilities. Fortunately, as change and technological evolution go hand in hand, advancements in quantum physics, materials sciences, and computational analysis have given rise to an infinite variety of design possibilities in acoustics.
