Timber’s sound performance makes it music to the ears The first three words that come to mind when defining the acoustics of timber materials are resonant, stiff, and lightweight. This makes timber an ideal material for musical instruments and vibrant spaces such as concert halls and cultural spaces such as wharenui and fale. The visual and aural experience provided by timber adds a sense of comfort and warmth that isn’t imparted by other materials. Timber is a versatile and easy to work with product that can be designed to be a sound reflector, absorber, or diffuser. This in combination with its pleasing aesthetic, makes it a commonly used surface treatment that can achieve a range of acoustic outcomes. Date of workshop to be confirmed.
