Acoustical Evaluation for the Renovation of Multipurpose Performance Hall
Taipei Arts Promotion Center Hall carried out renovation works and acoustical evaluation was conducted in 2003. In the past 15 years of use, due to air humidity and material aging and other factors, may affect the room acoustics. The assessments mainly focus on the setting of the space in theater mode, this is the most frequently used setting by the owner. Auditorium impressions of different audiences are different due to the different characteristics of the reverberation time. Different auditory impressions may also reflect time, space, intensity and frequency characteristics and other factors in sound field. In the survey and assessment, field measurement is taken as the basis for assessment, and the real field hall is measured, which includes in-site measurement and computer simulation evaluation for chamber music performance. Finally, the article finally presents the relevant improvement and description.
