Review of Meyer Sound System at 2012 Telluride Film Festival: “So Incredible, So Crisp”

At the 2012 Telluride Film Festival in the scenic Colorado ski town, a school gymnasium was once again skillfully transformed into a world-class screening room named the Galaxy. Here, a Meyer Sound system based on Acheron screen channel loudspeakers played an instrumental part in creating an environment that left a favorable impression on festival guest director and English writer Geoff Dyer, who selected several film revivals for this year’s event.

“I’ll never forget showing ‘Baraka’ there in 70mm,” says Dyer, who was surprised to learn that Galaxy was not a permanent entity. “The projection was amazing and the sound so incredible, so crisp.”

Film connoisseurs, including esteemed guests from the film industry, are drawn to Telluride every summer for its carefully curated program packed with sneak peeks of new movies as well as Q&A sessions and panels with the filmmakers. In addition to “Baraka,” movies that were heard this year through the Meyer Sound system at the Galaxy included “Argo” by director Ben Affleck, “The Iceman” by Ariel Vromen, “Hyde Park on Hudson” by Roger Michell, and “Frances Ha” by Noah Baumbach.

“There were numerous instances throughout the four-day Telluride Film Festival when a filmmaker would remark how amazing the sound presentation was at the Galaxy theatre,” comments Julie Huntsinger, co-director of the festival. “Ariel Vromen and his colleagues with ‘The Iceman’ were particularly thrilled when they heard their film presented—they couldn’t believe the quality of sound.”

The configuration deployed at the Galaxy included the Acheron screen channel loudspeakers, HMS-10 cinema surround loudspeakers, and X-800C subwoofers. MINA line array loudspeakers provided live sound reinforcement. System implementation was handled by festival staff and Boston Light & Sound.

At the Telluride Film Festival’s 40th anniversary in 2013, Meyer Sound will be supplying sound reinforcement for the Galaxy for the third straight year. Passes will be available beginning March 2013.
