Abstract

Relationships between physical acoustic parameters and stage design variables were investigated using computer simulation. This is amongst the fewest studies which use such an approach and it is the first study which employs an existing source auditorium. The latter is a reputable chamber music auditorium. Two stage acoustics parameters were tested, namely the STearly and the STlate. Five stage design variables were employed in the experiments, namely stage width, splay of side walls, stage height, canopy tilt and tilt of back wall. For each design variable five to eight stage configurations were tested. Stage design characteristics were identified which satisfy the selected acoustics parameters. The present study casts some light on the understanding of stage acoustics design in small auditoria.
