ROOM ACOUSTICS: STRAUSS ELEKTROAKUSTIK
The remit for the danceroom acoustics consisted of realising variable room acoustics with simple tools. The strongly reverberating room was fitted with a basic absorption in the ceiling area (design and digital fabrication: Gramazio & Kohler, Zürich) that prevents hard tonal sounds. Should the need arise, the reverberation time can be further reduced by means of sound-absorbing drapes, providing conditions reminiscent of chamber music that provide a stage for a detailed and clearly contoured acoustic and gestural movement expression.
Monitors: SE LINE SOURCES, SE SUBWOOFERS, SE POINT SOURCES
In collaboration with SPLINE GMBH, we are realising HIGH END HIFI for SURROUND SOUND HOMECINEMAS: SE LINE SOURCES and SE room acoustics guarantee pleasantly transparent soundscapes at low and high volumes, with the lowest and highest frequency sounds.

Professional electroacoustic planning: STRAUSS ELEKTROAKUSTIK, Bern
The audio design of the BMW MUSEUM is an acousmatic sound installation. Around 1,000 largely invisible loudspeakers were distributed in such a way that in combination with an electroacoustic control system and suitable musical compositions, prearranged acoustic spatial and movement impressions can be created. Various different loudspeaker types are used: SE line sources, SE point sources, SE dipole sources, bending wave radiators and soundbeams.
