Hello all,

Apologies for the ot post; I've got my final thesis show coming up in early
April and I'm doing all sound work using Pd.  The gallery space I am using
is actually quite poor for acoustics, as it's got a concrete floor and metal
roofing.  It's relatively small though - two hallways each about 10 feet by
30 feet large (3 by 9 meters if you like) making a "T" shape.  I would like
to do two 4 channel sound installations, perhaps one for each hallway.

I know there are many sound scientists and artists on the list so I thought
I would ask if anyone knows of resources to look at for dealing with these
kinds of issues?  How are other artists sorting these things out?  Any links
or recommendations would be very helpful.  Low ends tend to get very muddy
and the highs and mids spill all over the place.  Are there certain tricks I
could use in mixing or placement/kinds of speakers to preserve the highs and
mids better in a difficult space?  This might be a difficult question since
you can't hear the piece in person, but even general advice would be very

Also if any of you have documentation of your own installations, I would
love to see them.
