L-Acoustics Partners With Soundforms

The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park in San Diego, home of the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, where Soundforms designed the shell enclosure and audiences enjoy sound technology from L-Acoustics.

California-based L-Acoustics announced it has forged a partnership with Soundforms to offer innovative, immersive-audio technology to open-air performance spaces worldwide. The mission of the two companies thus will be to develop creative solutions that combine state-of-the-art L-Acoustics immersive-sound technology into the unique acoustic and aesthetic properties of Soundforms Performance Shells.

Per a statement, the end result will offer integrators, consultants and end users coherent, turn-key solutions for open-air performance venues. With this, they can create exceptional experiences for both audiences and performers.

According to L-Acoustics, the two companies first worked together at the Rady Shell at Jacobs Park, home of the San Diego Symphony Orchestra. Here, U.K.-based Soundforms designed the shell enclosure so that audiences could enjoy sound technology from L-Acoustics.

“This partnership with Soundforms is an exciting opportunity to bring our L-ISA immersive technology and Ambiance Acoustics system to innovative venues around the world,” says Tim Boot, business development director, acoustics solutions at L-Acoustics. “The combination of our audio solutions and Soundforms’ beautiful looking and beautiful sounding outdoor performance shells will offer audiences inspiring new live experiences.”

Building More Immersive Sound Experiences

Per a statement, Soundforms designs open-air performance enclosures, which provide a high-quality acoustic environment for outdoor music events. Its quality staging products offer an exemplary aesthetic and acoustical environment for a variety of clients. These include musicians, audiences, festivals, promoters, broadcasters, orchestras and sponsors.

The acoustics within the Soundforms shell allow musicians to hear themselves and each other more clearly. This results in open-air performances with significantly increased quality. The shell also helps project the enhanced sound produced from the performers to the audience. It thus generates a clearer, louder and more reverberant acoustic. Per a statement, this acoustic is far better than when using traditional transparent tents.

Mark Stephenson, executive chairman, SoundForms Ltd says, “As an orchestra conductor, I am all too familiar with the challenges musicians face when performing outdoors. I am thrilled that the Soundforms technical design team is collaborating with the brilliant sound technology experts at L-Acoustics. This promises to be a groundbreaking partnership.”
