artifact description
The goal of this project was to design several different speaker configurations for a virtual choir performance of Thomas Tallis' Spem in Alium. This piece requires forty singers, and thus forty speakers must be incorporated into the setup. In order to design each speaker each speaker setup, factors such as speaker placement, height, relative position, and sound projection had to be considered. In addition, suitable equipment had to be listed with prices.
