One of the goals of New World Symphony (NWS) is to “produce musicians who are leaders in the fullest sense of the word.” As one of the country’s prestigious music universities, the curriculum exposes young musicians to top level artists in a variety of musical genres. However, NWS goes beyond the traditional conservatory.
Recently completed is NWS’ ninety-thousand square foot home on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. The new facility features a seven hundred seat concert hall, rehearsal, practice and instructional rooms, offices and technical support spaces to help NWS “become a global hub for creative expression and collaboration, and a laboratory for generating new ideas about the way music is taught, performed, and experienced.”
Sonitus, as concept sound designer and audio systems consultant, is proud to be a part of such a forward-leaning production complex. A unique system design involves custom in-wall loudspeaker components to compliment flexible surround video projection within the main hall. The high level technology will appropriately support the high performance acoustic environment. In addition to sound design, Sonitus is also helping organize systems for recording and Internet2 broadcast.
