David Byrne of Talking Heads Talks About Acoustics

by Acoustics By Design on April 26, 2012

In this TED Conference video, David Byrne, lead singer of Talking Heads, gives us a brief a history of music and how it evolved in relation to architectural acoustics and reverberation. Worth the watch.

One issue this video doesn’t address is that architectural acoustics can be designed and optimized in any building. Sure, Carnegie Hall has a signature sound, but that sound can be altered. He mentions in the video that arenas are notorious for terrible acoustics. Again it doesn’t have to be that way. At Acoustics By Design, we engineer acoustical solutions for everything from nightclubs to theaters to outdoor amphitheaters. With the right tools, experience, and expertise, we can design the acoustical performance for your next performance space.
