Spatial variation of sound in a concert hall
In ODEON you can simulate how the orchestra sounds at any position in a concert hall. On our Multi-source sound examples page, you can find a collection of high-quality audio samples for true binaural reproduction (listening with two ears). Use headphones for optimal performance and enjoy a 3D-like reproduction, which is richer than regular stereo.
In the example Brahms in Liederhalle the sound at the conductor and the audience at the floor and the balcony has been simulated for Brahms Symphony No 4, 3rd movement.
The conductor’s position is the most special one as some musicians/ instruments are very close, while others are very distant. In addition, the locations of the musicians are at very different angles in the range of +/-90 degrees, where for audience positions they are typically less than +/-30 degrees.
Ideally all listeners, apart from the conductor, should see the orchestra and experience sound in the same high quality. ODEON can help to achieve great acoustic designs taking into account the size, the geometry and the materials used.
