AcousticShell

When performing at a conventional theatre, symphonic and chamber orchestras, as well soloists and opera singers, encounter problems related to the projection of the sound and voice, due to the noise that is produced on the space of the stage box and the absence of diffusion materials.

The sound that is produced by the orchestra is dispersed heterogeneously in all directions, depending on the instruments. It needs an acoustic shell to channel it towards the audience. In order not to lose the sound level and all the musicality of orchestras, acoustic shells should be placed around them.

To project the sound, it is necessary to install diffusion panels shaped like a shell, open towards the audience, in order to scatter the sound in that direction. The Acoustic Shells can be installed hanging on the stage's ceiling and/or on the floor around the musicians.

Following the research on acoustic panels, JOCAVI® adopted four of its models of acoustic diffusers to create these models of AS® acoustic shells.

Spaces, like theatres and auditoriums, where classic music performances are programmed, are usually big-volume rooms. Thus, due to the noise from the audience and the lack of an acoustic shell, electro-acoustic equipment (microphones, power stages and loudspeakers) is overused in these spaces. Musicians, singers and musical directors do not tend to overuse electro-acoustics in order not to distort the natural colour of the instruments and voices. The use of our AS® acoustic shells increases the natural level of the sound that is genuinely produced by the instruments and naturally increases the level of the acoustic pressure of the room, thus leading to a balanced diffusion throughout the whole range of the sound spectrum.

Versatility

Unlike the most ancient and original open-air acoustic shells made of stone in roman amphitheatres, today's acoustic shells used in performance rooms have to be versatile and discreet, so that their presence does not hinder the use of the space for the most varied types of performances.

Benefits

It is a frustrating situation for musicians, maestros and sound technicians when that happens and there is nothing within their reach that they can do.
