The ANU School of Music Post-Production Suites: Design, Technology, Research, and Pedagogy

This engineering brief considers the design, construction, technological capacity, research, and pedagogical remit of two post-production suites built at the ANU School of Music. These suites were constructed simultaneously to the recording studio refurbishment, as detailed in AES e-Brief #397 (2017). This new e-Brief first considers the intention and purpose behind the splitting of a single, large control room into two separate, versatile post-production spaces. Secondly, the e-Brief focuses on design and construction, with consideration given to acoustic treatment, functionality, ergonomic workflow, and aesthetics. The e-Brief also focuses technological capacity and the benefits of built-in limitations. Finally, the post-production suites are considered in the broader context of both the research and pedagogical activities of the School.
