Acoustic Intervention in a Live Music Club
This study describes an attempt to lower the sound levels at a live music venue. Acoustic measurements of live music concerts, feedback monitor loudspeakers, stage amplifiers and acoustic drums were made. The sound attenuation, when using screens of different heights in front of the drums, was measured. An acoustic renovation of a small live music venue was accomplished, with new wall and ceiling material installed. The sound system was replaced and the stage was enlarged. The direct sound from the stage was lowered by 50%. Sound level measurements made during concerts before and after the intervention showed a sound level reduction of 9 dB.
