Trio of Music Practice Rooms for Goldsmiths

Back to News

Black Cat Acoustics, together with sister company, has successfully installed three sound-isolating Music Practice Rooms at Goldsmiths College in London.

Manager Teresa Rogers said, “The majority of the work was done in the summer of 2013.  It was a busy installation period for Music Practice Rooms and Black Cat Music.”

Teresa explained, “ specialise in the supply and installation of sound-isolating rooms which provide the ideal rehearsal space for musicians and singers and also make excellent recording studios.  The modular design allows for a wide range of sizes, suitable for a solo singer, or up to a room large enough to accommodate a choir or a band.  Another valuable benefit is that the rooms can be relocated as space requirements and priorities change.”  The sound isolating rooms are designed to create an ideal rehearsal space with climate controlled interior environment for the comfort of musicians and singers in which they can practise without their music causing disturbance to other classes in the college.  The balanced acoustics within the room provide a high quality space sutiable for recording purposes.  The modular design allows for a wide range of sizes, from a solo singer to a choir or a band to be accommodated.  And as needs and space allocations change the sound isolating rooms can simply be re-located when required.

Goldsmiths can trace its history back to 1891 when The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths set up its Technical and Recreative Institute to provide educational opportunities for the people of New Cross.  The University of London acquired the new Institute and re-established it as Goldsmiths College in 1904.  Since 1989, Goldsmiths has been a full College of the University with its own distinctive role as an independent university institution, at the same time committed to its membership of one of the world’s great academic federations.

The world-renowned music department at Goldsmiths embraces 21st-centure culture.  Goldsmith’s music degrees bring together academic work with creative practice, letting students merge classical, contemporary, studio-based, ethnographic and popular music studies.  Students at Goldsmiths are given the opportunity to perform, compose, study and experiment.  The Music Practice Rooms from, installed by Black Cat Acoustics, help to enable students to make music in sound-isolated pods – ideal both for rehearsing and for recording music.
