Abstract

This paper is a narrative of the trials and tribulations that the author went through from design through to the commissioning of probably the most advanced higher education cinema sound facilities within the Asia-Pacific region. The facilities include a 7.1 THX and Dolby certified dubbing theatre, audio recording studio integrated into a 30-workstation audio/music technology lab, multiple 5.1 surround screening rooms, colour correction, multi-format home entertainment environment and a large sound stage that can accommodate a full symphonic orchestra. The main purpose for the facilities were to support the delivery of undergraduate and post-graduate courses in sound, music and audio within the academic studios of cinematic arts and animation and to establish a research centre for cinema sound and music technology applications.
