Some thoughts on acoustics.

October 4, 2017

As more faith communities incorporate modern music into their traditional  

worship venues the acousitc qualities of the space can become problematic. Traditional music (organ and hym singing) wants a more lively space with some reverberation.  On the other hand, modern music (amplified insturments) needs a softer quality,  approaching acousically dead space.  As churches transition from one format to another, it becomes very important for your architect to understand this difference and respond with a space which can best accomodate both worship formats.  Unfortunaley when both worship formats occur in the same space, there will always be a compromise to each.  An architect experienced in faith-based design is the best bet for finding the right balance for both.  .
