This paper describes an interdisciplinary project on room acoustics. The main goals of this project is to identify and analyse the relevant acoustical parameters for small rooms used for music production ­ concert halls, studios, lecture rooms, movie theatres, etc. ­ and, using modern methodologies for software development, build computational tools to evaluate and manipulate these parameters. We describe a computational environment - ACMUS -which will provide tolls for measuring acoustical parameters in small rooms, and for simulating the acoustic behaviour of those rooms.
