Master planning, architectural acoustics, audio systems design consulting, and noise control services for a new music tent which replaced the existing pavilion at Aspen Music Festival. The new facility opens to the exterior, consists of 2,050-seats and accommodates multi-purpose performances along with symphonic music. The construction of the tent at the audience area is unique, due to the introduction of a solid roof above the center of the seating area. Constructed of tongue-and-groove structural wood, and heavy laminated glass, low frequency energy is retained and reverberant sound energy sustained. The audio systems are also designed to emphasize recording functions.
