Whether a huge performance or a humble speech, artistic and entertainment spaces should create deep emotional connections with the listeners through the transfer of information.
A big challenge, from an acoustic standpoint, is the level of clarity with which that information arrives to the listener. For example, it is frustrating and unacceptable to attend a piano recital and not be able to differentiate the notes and dynamics that the instrument itself projects because of the overwhelming amount of reverberation in the space. The frequency distribution should be even without the audibility of excessive low frequencies which causes annoyance and a sense of unbalance.
