Austin Music Hall to be upgraded

Nomad Sound has been charged with tweaking the sound and is taking several steps, including adding 63 specially designed panels to improve acoustics.

“We have come up with some solutions we believe will make a big difference,” said Damon Lange, the company’s owner.

“The panels should stop sound from bouncing around,” Hicks said. “Right now, it’s all concrete. That’s what has made the room sound so bad.”

The president spoke here last week. I actually saw Christopher Cross play here during SXSW this year. I can definitely concur that the place is in need of an upgrade. The new ACL venue is only a couple blocks away and has almost an identical seating/stage layout. So it makes sense that the ownership and upgrade to the Austin Music Hall will be towards realigning the events it books (beyond traditional music concerts).
