Minimalist design trends usually to blame for noisy restaurants, audio expert says

Have you ever gone out for a quiet meal for two, only to find that it is anything but quiet?The restaurant echoes with the clinking of plates and loud “background” music, and you have to shout over the noise of dozens of over-table conversations just to be heard.

It’s a common experience according to Soren Norgaard, general manager of audio visual trade show Integrate, which opens in Melbourne on Tuesday.

“I think we’ve all been in a situation where you’re out and the food is nice, but you can’t actually converse and it’s just annoying,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne‘s Sami Shah and Jacinta Parsons.

Style-wise, Valle Nevado is what can only be described as ‘hip international.’ Brazilians, Chileans and Europeans make the place seem like an electronic music festival transported to an remote Andean valley. Huge speakers blare out thumping, bass-heavy music, while promotoras stalk the staircases selling everything from Red Bull to mobile phones.
