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.
