Acoustics

Every day it’s something new.

Today it was acoustics.

“Sound,” he said, “is what they’ll get wrong.”

Nobody designs spaces for sound. We design for look, but sound is feel. Sound is mood, is a companion.

An apartment or flat with hardwood floors simply feels different. Not just when playing music. The tap of steps across a hardwood floor. The clatter when something falls from the counter.

In a theater, in a recital hall? There’s so little sound it feels something’s pushing on your ears. No sound feels like pressure.

In Hollywood they take the ambient sound in a room and then filter it out and then put back sound that sounds more natural. How’s that for nurture over nature?
