Sound Projection - Songs for an Airless Room

Project: Other ProjectNon-Funded Commission or Consultancy work

Description

Sound projection, engineering and technical assistance for rehearsals and tour of Martin Parker's opera for cinemas, and sound recording of rehearsals and tour.

Key findings

Technical skills and electronic design work needed for integration of music performance in 5.1 surround-sound equipped cinemas is non-trivial. Several different solutions for interfacing equipment had to be conceived and the techniques for sound projection in cinema spaces had to be developed in a very different way.
