Topic: Mid-size Venue System Design & Acoustics; Affordable Listening Room Acoustics

During the COVID-19 pandemic, an unprecedented number of musicians, producers, audio engineers and audience members have found themselves forced to work and listen at home in rooms that were never designed for the purpose. Pandemic acoustics work has been about finding inexpensive incremental changes to living rooms, bedrooms and even closets to make them viable spaces for critical listening. Hendrik will talk about the Bedroom Acoustics projects that he started over 10 years ago and how it has become relevant again.

Also, on the docket is blocking out the sound of screaming children while you are Zooming with your boss...

Hendrik Gideonse has 25 years of experience creating custom treatments to solve acoustic problems. He started XIX Acoustics in 2008 to design and build studios and listening rooms that sound and ‘feel’ great. The feel is a combination of aesthetics, usability, and ergonomics. At the meeting, he will answer questions that are informed by experience, and many years of on-the-job successful installations.

Our original meeting date was in March 2020 at the at the Porch Southern Fare restaurant. It is one of the sites treated acoustically by XIX-Acoustics. Hendrik will show and explain some of his room treatment products for improving the sound in your playback room, and the audio equipment he can employ if desired by the client.
