Balancing sight & sound in heritage worship buildings – Dan Clayton

Dan Clayton of Clayton Acoustics Group discusses the acoustician’s dilemma: “what we see may not be what we hear,” as acquired acoustical expectations are upended by actual conditions. This webinar describes these differences and explore approaches to acoustical enhancement within limitations of the buildings themselves plus further constraints of contemporary preservation practice.
