University Scholar, Grant

I was awarded a $2,000 Grant to research forms in multi-purpose spaces versus performance and their acoustical correlation, in regards to the listener's experience. Using myself as a constant and the different venues as variables I compared the difference between listening to music in a multi-purpose space versus a performance specific space and later developed a solution for the acoustics in a multi-purpose space.
