New York Times reviews the Miami Beach SoundScape


The Constellation acoustic technology's ability to immerse outdoor audiences has impressed the most critical listeners at the Miami Beach SoundScape of the New World Center, home of the New World Symphony.

Using the D-Mitri digital audio platform, Constellation with more than 100 Meyer Sound loudspeakers outside the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center (NWC) replicates the immersive sonic experience enjoyed inside the symphony hall. In his review of the New World Symphony's debut simulcast concert conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas, New York Times music critic Anthony Tommasini wrote "…the orchestra came through with remarkable presence, body and clarity. Sitting in the park watching the broadcast you do not detect the music coming from any particular set of speakers. Rather, it permeates the space."

Principal sound designer for both the New World Center and Miami Beach Soundscape was Fred Vogler of Los Angeles-based Sonitus. Engineering specifics for SoundScape audio were a collaborative effort on the part of Vogler, his associate Tim Boot, and Rod Sintow and Kelly Prince of Florida-based systems integrator, Pro Sound & Video.
