Inside Out — Time Variant Electronic Acoustic Enhancement Provides the Missing Link for Acoustic Music Outdoors

Document Thumbnail

No matter how good the acoustic ensemble, moving them from the concert hall to an outdoor stage dramatically changes the listening experience for both the musicians, and those in attendance – usually, not for the better. For the musicians, the loss of reflected and reverberant energy alters communication between members of the ensemble. The physiology of playing the instrument changes as well – without support from reflected and reverberant energy, musicians must compensate. Thus while the outdoor performance experience of may be deemed “good” for both those playing as well those listening, it is not the experience that either desire. This paper describes how time variant electro-acoustic enhancement has been successfully used to dramatically improve the acoustical musical experience for outdoor performance.
