  1. Almost everyone enjoys hearing some kind of
  2. live music. But few of us realize the complex process
  3. that goes into designing the acoustics of concert and
  4. lecture halls. In the design of any building where
  5. audibility of sound is a major consideration, architects
  6. have to carefully match the space and materials they
  7. use to the intended purpose of the venue. One problem
  8. is that the intensity of sound may build too quickly in
  9. an enclosed space. Another problem is that only part
  10. of the sound we hear in any large room or auditorium
  11. comes directly from the source. Much of it reaches us
  12. a fraction of a second later after it has been reflected
  13. off the walls, ceiling, and floor as reverberated sound.
  14. How much each room reverberates depends upon both
  15. its size and the ability of its contents to absorb sound.
  16. Too little reverberation can make music sound thin
  17. and weak; too much can blur the listener's sense of
  18. where one note stops and the next begins.
  19. Consequently, the most important factor
  20. in acoustic design is the time it takes for these
  21. reverberations to die down altogether, called the
  22. reverberation time.
