The science of violin building, sound landscapes of the future and how to design room acoustics: Three renowned researchers will bring sound research to life in public lectures to be held on Tuesday, March 20, starting at 8:00 pm in the Audimax (main auditorium) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM). The presentations will be held in English, and admission is free.
The lecture "Sounds of the Future" is part of the annual International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (GAMM) conference program and is intended for an audience from the general public. Three renowned speakers have been invited to contribute to the event:
The main lecture "The Tonal Colours of Realisations - On the Use of Scientific Tools in Today’s Violin Making " will be presented by master violin builder and Graduated Physics Engineer Martin Schleske. His master workshop near Munich produces approximately 30 instruments every year. These instruments are played by renowned soloists and concert masters around the world. The Deutsches Museum in Munich has already included much of the results of his research in its exhibit collection.
The Italian acoustic engineer, pianist and composer Dr.-Ing. Renzo Vitale will speak on the topic of "Composing Soundscapes of Tomorrow". Vitale works as a development engineer at the BMW research and innovation center in the area of Sound Design for electric vehicles as well as in "Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH)". At the same time he performs around the world as a musician, in particular as a pianist and composer and also works as a performance artist.
The Graduated Acoustical Engineer Jürgen Reinhold will speak on "Challenges of the Acoustical Design of Spaces for Music". He has worked for 30 years as an acoustical engineer at Müller-BBM. Counted among the world’s leading acousticians, he has supervised the room-acoustical design and renovation of famous music locations such as the Sydney Opera House, the Moscow Bolshoi Theater and the Teatro "La Fenice" in Venice.
Date/Time: Tuesday, March 20, starting at 8:00 pm, doors open at 7:30 pm.
Event location: Audimax of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), city center campus, Arcisstraße 21, 80333 Munich.
