PSFK Talks to fabric’s Cameron Leslie
Sound: Different buildings have different challenges for sound– the sheer height of our amphitheatre style space meant there was a horrendous 3-second delay compared to our sub-0.75 second position at fabric. As such the whole ceiling is coated in this deep papier maché style material which was sprayed on to deaden the sound. It’s incredible how little reverb there is now – a simple clap of the hands is just killed immediately, no echo whatsoever.
…In 1999 at fabric we introduced the BodySonic floor and while it’s still a fantastic element of the venue we know from experience and the development of technology that we could do something a little bit more advanced this time round; as such the BodyKinetic floor is the fruits of that research and development.
