Great Mountains Music Festival uses Constellation
SOUTH KOREA: Meyer Sound’s Constellation acoustic system was recently put to use for the Great Mountains Music Festival in South Korea. The festival was celebrating its 10th season at the Alpensia Resort in Pyeongchang under the musical direction of sister-duo cellist Myung-Wha Chung and violinist Kyung Wha-Chung.
A Constellation system was installed at the Alpensia Concert Hall to augment the dry 1.5-second reverberation time with early reflections and late reverberations, which could be adjusted as needed for specific performances.
After experiencing Constellation at Great Mountains for the first time, festival orchestra clarinettist Evan Solomon commented: ‘There was more reverberation, making it more comfortable to perform on stage. It was a natural reverberation, not artificial, so I was very happy with the improvement.’
The Constellation acoustic system encompasses a complete suite of hardware and software tools, along with design services and meticulous final room tuning. The variable room acoustics was created using a large number of distributed ambient sensing microphones, Meyer Sound’s D-Mitri digital audio platform for signal processing using the patented VRAS algorithm, and numerous small Meyer Sound self-powered loudspeakers, precisely positioned both overhead and around the perimeter of the hall.
The Constellation system was coordinated and installed by a team led by Incova Ltd CTO Eugine Yune.
