Our rehearsal space is almost 90 square metres in area. Two and-a bit sides of the room are covered in a three metre high acoustic curtain, that can be moved out of way when necesary.. The room itself is pretty high, so we found that we really needed to do something to soften the reflections in the space. As the fourth side is mirrored, volume was an unwanted side effect of the sheer amount of shiny, reflective surfaces we had created. The floor is a polished wooden laminate, so the acoustic curtain was a much needed solution. It doesn`t quite go to the back wall so provides a nice corridor in and out of the room too.
