Live Room, Sound Studio Laboratory, University of Athens

Information

Description: 
The Sound Studio of the Laboratory of Music Acoustics Technology (LabMAT) at the Department of Music Studies of the University of Athens consists of three main spaces being the Mixing Suite, the Control Room, and the Live Room. It is equipped with the state-of-the-art technology for recordings and sound production, and it is used for teaching, professional recordings, and research activities. Rotating-wall acoustic panels are installed in the Live Room, as well as a set of sliding acoustic panels mounted on a rail system approximately in the middle area. The sliding panels can be used to divide the space into two rooms and modify the acoustics of the space according to the user’s needs. The measurements presented here are from the largest section of the divided space for three acoustic configurations of the panels. For more information please contact with Aglaia Foteinou (A.Foteinou@wlv.ac.uk) The acoustic study of this space was presented at the Acoustics2016 (04/10/16) and the paper can be found here: http://conferences.helina.gr/2016/en/program/
