The acoustic study and design comprised the following stages :

  • in situ acoustic measurement campaign for the characterization of the room acoustics ;
  • Computer 3D simulations of the sound propagation;
  • Concert listening sessions;
  • Interviews with musicians, administrators and concert organizers.

The results of the study allowed us to prepare an acoustic concept and technical specifications for an easily demountable shell, capable of notably increasing the acoustic conditions, for musicians and public alike, for the production of chamber music concerts, recitals and conferences.
