Acoustics of the Former Teatro -La Fenice- in Venice

Document Thumbnail

The acoustic characteristics of the former -La Fenice- theater have been analyzed. Binaural measurements of the impulse responses were performed at a large number of measuring points within the hall. Following the recent ISO standard 3382, many mono and binaural acoustical parameters were calculated from the impulse responses, such as reverberation time, clarity, center time, strength, initial time delay gap, interaural cross correlation, and others. Finally, Ando's preference maps were developed, taking into account two different kinds of musical signals. The measurements underlined the peculiar acoustical behavior of the theater, characterized by a greater initial decay of the reverberant tail and a subsequent reverberation that allowed a remarkable fusion of the sound and sustain to the musicians.'d
