The Science Of Sound

Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS is a concert hall specifically designed for symphonic performances of the highest quality. Famed architectural firm Cesar Pelli & Associates and acoustics expert Kirkegaard & Associates collaborated to create this world-class venue. From the auditorium to the practice rooms, every detail has been thoughtfully planned to provide artists with the best performing environment and music lovers, the ultimate concert experience.

The Auditorium

Unique devices have been incorporated into the shoe box-shaped auditorium to enhance its natural acoustic qualities. The gently arched perforated metal ceiling allows sound to travel to an upper ceiling. There are seven moveable panels in this upper ceiling, each of which can be adjusted to alter the volume in the hall and simulate a wide range of acoustic environments. Acoustically absorptive panels in the sidewalls can be opened or closed to adjust the resonance of the auditorium. The hall sits on resilient pads and is surrounded by two concrete walls separated by an isolation joint to eliminate external noise. The air-conditioning is virtually silent.
