The acoustic shell of the Auditorio de Tenerife is one of the largest in Europe and is giving hundreds of benefits for the Symphonic Orchestra. This particular shell was designed to provide not only a reinforcement to improve the connection between stage and audience, also to reduce the risk of hearing damage produced by sound reflections coming from the shell towards the musicians. This is possible due to bespoke surfaces.
We can design the walls in order to provide controlled reflections reducing the impact of sound at the most sensitive hearing range with the latest technology of micro perforated acoustic panels or special diffusers.
One of the biggest contributions of an acoustic shell is the positive impact that is reflected on musicians and in their performing habilites. This is possible due to communication improvements between them and with the conductor. An acoustic shell provides controlled sound reflections with a touch of colour thus allowing the conductor to perceive each instrument with better definition and, therefore, can control the dynamics of each interpreter better.
For Theatre Technicians…
The most important factor for theatre technicians is the time. With these type of towers you can set up the stage in less than an hour (based on each case), including the ceiling diffusers. Also the Tenerif’s Shell was designed for 5 configurations allowing the orchestra to perform from 10 to 70 musicians plus the choir.
