the sonor project
We first learned of the engineer and musician Emil Weiss and the institute for applied acoustic from the newspapers and an article on his sound optimization on the “Rinker” church bell. Somebody such highly talented to optimize a bell (or musical instruments), would probably find a solution to our non-existing church acoustics that we had tried to sort out for 30 years - “thought and done”!
Emil Weiss started the project “sonor”
together with the parish, to whom he explained in several steps and with
public demonstrative experiments how he thought to sort out the problem:
Only a string was put up and a couple of loose reflectors hanged over
it. Mr Weiss designed them to harmonize with the silver-ish elements in
the altar room.
Mr Weiss achieved to transform our square church room, that had an acoustic like a cardboard box (or none at all), acoustically, without rebuilding or the aid of electronic devices such, that our parish is finally able to hear themselves, that is a very important aspect to every parish.
PS: His work can be inspected in our church.
