Resonant Chamber Turns A Performance Venue Into A Transformer
Any live musician will tell you that good sound is essential for a performance, and will likely have stories of awful acoustics, echoey rooms, and uncooperative sound guys. Something that’s overlooked by countless venues all over the world is that different spaces are good for different kinds of performances. A four-piece band might sound great in a room that makes a rap group sound like absolute hell.
Changing the game in this respect is design company RVTR, whose Resonant Chamber turns a performance space into a dynamic environment for different types of sound. Essentially a massive foldable sculpture, the structure combines reflective and absorptive materials along with sensors and output devices which can be configured to achieve the most appropriate configuration for the sound occurring in the room.
Aside from its functionality, Resonant Chamber definitely spices up the appearance of any performance venue. Plus, we’re guessing it must look pretty trippy to stare up at the ceiling and see the entire thing moving and shifting.
