Without sound quality - specifically in new media including streamings and recordings - contemporary art organisations stand little chance of entering into a broader public awareness. This is especially relevant in regard to the symphonic orchestras and a growing diversity of artistic projects balancing different genres. It is then crucial to reach the acoustic potential of a concert hall as well as the tones of individual instruments. This affects listeners directly and stands for an overall acoustic ecology.
