The characteristic acoustics of churches can be very beautiful and desirable, on the other hand, it may have a disadvantage with speech (speech intelligibility). The origin of the churches has led to great musical compositions for organ and singing, among other things, in recent centuries.
Church and music are, as it were, ‘fertilized’. Over time, there are many churches that no longer have the desired acoustics. Often this has to do with building history (such as repair of war damage / alterations by changing use) and the acoustics of these (sometimes ancient churches) have unfortunately been lost in part. For speech, this may be beneficial for music that needs spaciousness it won’t work.
In the absence of a beautiful acoustics, the organ and choir, instrumentalists and singers of the present are not threated optimally (acoustically). They will sound too “dry” due to lack of reverberation.
SIAP has developed an integral solution specifically for churches that are too dry to get the speech (intelligibility) and acoustics (including reverberation time extension) as desired.
