Meyer brings Constellation to Reproduced Sound '11
John Pellowe of Meyersound will be adding a virtual dimension to the Reproduced Sound conference in Brighton next month (16-18 November, Thistle Hotel) with a full installation of the Constellation Acoustic System.
Some of you may already have experienced a Constellation system, or one of the other systems in a handful of competent electronic acoustic systems, including ACS, Lares, SIAP and Carmen. Some may also have heard John's demonstrations at recent ISE, Prolight & Sound and Infocomm shows. The same comprehensive demo rig will be set up in the main hall at Reproduced Sound 2011, making it available to all presenters with audio examples to play into acoustic conditions other than the normal conference hall.
More specifically, John will be offering delegates the opportunity to hear, play with and to play musical instruments within (rather than 'through') the installation after the conference banquet on the Thursday evening. Whether it is by taking control of the system parameters or by taking the position of the performing musician, this is a great opportunity for delegates to get much further into the capabilities of virtual acoustic systems and to push this particular installation to its limits. This is not something usually possible in a trade show setting but a late night session at RS lends itself perfectly.
John will also be presenting a paper during the daytime sessions on novel uses of artificial acoustic systems, and there will also be a fascinating array of papers on subjects from sports stadium sound, broadcast audio, studio control rooms, speech intelligibility and many ore.
