Akademiet – Elevating the Music Experience
Differentiated, inexpensive solutions to the performing arts
Akademiet in Nørrebro educates musicians, dancers, and actors. Within all the creative arts, good acoustics are critical, but in music they are not only critical, but are an absolute necessity. Akademiet took over an old, abandoned industrial building in the fall of 2019 and needed interior solutions that could meet the teaching and artistic challenges in rooms of very different shapes and sizes.
Each room was fit with Soundscapes™ acoustic panels, cut and placed carefully around the ceilings and walls in relation to its acoustic sound patterns. Intelligent Space’s 40mm Soundscapes™ panels are Acoustic Class A, as several other panels on the market, however they have the unique quality that while they capture the entire sound frequency spectrum, they attenuate slightly more in the high mid-tones. The result is that the overtones in music (and speech) cut though clearly, while unwanted frequencies are toned down. This is an important key to high speech clarity in the dramatic arts and of unique importance to clarity in music.
A quick walk and listen through Akademiets various rooms give a clear impression of the advantages of a varied and sensitive approach to sound and of the possibilities of achieving professional sound levels on low budgets.
