Over 30 years ago, French composer Pierre Schaeffer said a profound statement, “Sound is the vocabulary of nature.” This rings true because sound can evoke emotion, as well as, tell us about character, place, and time. Sound informs and moves us in ways visuals on a stage or a screen can’t. In addition, certain combinations of sound and visuals can evoke what neither can do on their own.
If you’re wondering just how important the quality of sound really is, just look at some of the iconic film scores that have come to be part of what makes their films famous. Can you imagine Jaws without that haunting score or Star Wars without its visceral sound effects?
Truth is, there is a reason why you can’t stop thinking about the movie you just saw, last week’s concert, or that party you went to. These are all uniquely overwhelming experiences, from the venue to the food, and the collective sound of the crowd all in unison. It appears that as humans, we are drawn to experiences that provide us with multi-sensory stimulation, with sound being the most important one.
What is Sound and Why is it Important?
The art of sound is created through vibrations turning into sound waves that we can hear. These sound waves are created due to objects vibrating, or shaking back and forth, traveling through matter such as: water, air, and other solid objects. When these vibrations reach our ears, they make the organ in our inner ear called the cochlea vibrate. These fluid-filled structures contain small hair cells that output an electrical signal. Signals of different frequencies and lengths travel through the auditory nerve directly to the brain, which turns them into sound. These sound waves are important in games, movies, and music, but are especially prominent during events or parties. Sound is the glue when solidifying all the event elements such as food and entertainment together.
A good quality sound system along with entertainment, such as a DJ or band will create the ultimate experience for your guests. Event production calls for a company specializing in event services, just as a poor sound system equals poor sound quality. Here a couple of reasons why having good sound quality can make or break your event, and how Light Up The Night’s event services can help.
- Keeping guests engaged: Nobody wants their guests to be distracted or have their eyes glued to their phones during a performance or speech. Installing quality sound systems for your event helps keep your guests engaged. This is especially true when it is time to play music and get everyone out on the dance floor. The catchiest of songs will sound awful with a bad sound system, so investing in a good one will make all the difference.
- Enhance the venue: You do not just plug in any type of device at your event for entertainment. Light Up The Night is equipped with a variety of woofers that will suit any event and will enhance your venue space. A premium sound system amplifies the desired effect of an event.
So, in conclusion, the quality of sound is critical to any event. An experienced company will be able to pick out the best locations at your venue to place speakers, and select the right equipment to deliver the cleanest sound possible to the room or outdoor area. And most importantly set everything up properly so your soiree goes off without a hitch!
