Acousticians, Think TANK

Just under 300 miles west of the CENSEO AV+Acoustics Denver, CO office location, in the remote town of Rangely, exists an incredible acoustical discovery. What was once an abandon water tower on a hill in a small mining town, is now a space for profound musical creation. The refurbished TANK’s acoustical value, producing long echoes and [...]

Sounds of Battery Life, Unplugged

The simple sound of life all around us might be the key to making “plugging in” a thing of the past. A new energy-harvesting prototype has been found to produce energy, through the use of noise, in amounts great enough to charge mobile phones. Yet another discovery of the ways sound engineering and acoustical [...]

First-Ever Acoustical View of Thunder

A single strike of lightning can contain 1,500 megajoules of energy. That converts to six months’ worth of power for a 100-watt lightbulb. It’s enough shock to be a leading cause of weather-related death in the US.LIGHTNING…The odds of becoming a victim in the U.S. in any one year is 1 in 700,000. The odds [...]

The Invisible Element in Great Design

Invisible to the human eye; profoundly impacting to architectural appeal. What is this invisible presence altering the human experience in design and architecture? Acoustics “Acoustics is the interdisciplinary science that deals with the study of all mechanical waves in gases, liquids, and solids including topics such as vibration, sound, ultrasound and infrasound. The application [...]

UH Kennedy Theatre Orchestra Pit Lift

The CENSEO team recently completed an orchestra pit lift project at the University of Hawaii Kennedy Theatre. . Our team of engineers redesigned the pit lift using a new, more efficient system that solved several functionality problems with the existing 50-year-old hydraulic lift. After fully understanding the needs of the UH Kennedy Theatre project [...]
