Feb 7, 2023

Schoeps microphones has been specified for the new Ljubljana Conservatoire of Music and Ballet, in the heart of Ljubljana, Slovenia. It was designed by Ofis Architects; Mr. Neven Smolcic was in charge of Acoustic Design.

The concert hall is housed in a space that opens into a previously unused attic. A wooden sub-structure was built, to which acoustic panels were mounted at different angles and with a variety of perforations. Seven different mineral and stone wools and over 300 wooden panels were used to create the acoustics, which were subject to the most demanding criteria.

The 168-seat auditorium is designed acoustically so that it can be used without the sound system, with high intelligibility and evenly distributed sound throughout the auditorium. In terms of space design and acoustics, the hall is pleasing to the eye, bright, with windows overlooking the Old Town and Ljubljana Castle.

The Music Hall has a projection screen (6 meters in length), surround recording microphone system, PA surround sound system and 4 professional 3G HD-SDI broadcast video cameras for recording and streaming. Lighting was also critical. LED lamps were used throughout to eliminate interference and each lamp’s colour and intensity can be individually controlled, ensuring that musicians’ sheet music can be clearly read.

For Recording Microphone Systems following systems were used:

Schoeps OCT Surround Set

Schoeps Stereo Set CMC6xt-MK4

The Music Hall of the Conservatory of Music and Ballet is the most advanced in the region in terms of technology and acoustics. It provides the audience with a high-quality music experience, while also inspiring students and teachers alike.
