Two students from Media Technology drove to Chepstow earlier in the month to provide noise monitoring services with Vanguardia Consulting at Balter Festival. The festival ran between 2nd and 4th June and describes itself as a “travelling convoy of misfits and weirdos, wacked-out racers and disco divas”.
Students from across the Media Technology programme got together on Wednesday 8th March for a talk by Warren King from Vanguardia Consulting. Vanguardia provide a range of electroacoustic and acoustic services to a wide range of industries but Warren came to talk specifically about environmental monitoring and assessment for music festivals.
Southampton Solent University students have been working with event sound specialists Vanguardia Consulting to manage noise levels at the Isle of Wight Festival.
As well as taking off-site sound measurements at various locations, the group of four students worked with engineers to actively manage the on-site sound levels at the various stages during the four-day event.
