Reverberation in Church

The complicated room acoustics of cathedrals and mosques are presented with ease by the auralisation methods used in Odeon. This example takes you to three different spots in a model of the Grundvigs Church – a large cathedral in the northern part of Copenhagen, Denmark. The dimensions of the church are approximately (L x W x H) = (63 x 30 x 20) metres and the overall reverberation time ranges from 12.5 seconds at 63 Hz to 1.4 seconds at 8 kHz. All receivers are directed towards the altar and the source, a bassoon duo is simulated using a two track recording and simulating two sources in the church.
