I’m truly excited to share my passion for producing music and DJing in my MasterClass. It’s the first time I get to show you my secrets and tips, and everything I’ve learned in my twenty years in this business. Enrollment is now open:

How Acoustic Shells Work (And How to Design Them Effectively)


Acoustic shells are iconic elements seen in public spaces around the world. But beyond their curious form, their operation is highly interesting. Inspired by the design of the human ear, the sound waves produced within acoustic shells are organized by their form, becoming stronger and more vivid for the audience in front of the structure.

From a technical point of view, sound propagation is carried out by reverberations that, when created inside the shell, are directed by the concave shape towards the spectators.
