Hobbie Stuart visits Ford's acoustic test laboratories

YouTuber and singer +Hobbie Stuart video blogged a trip with Ebony Day to Cologne to see how he would sound in +Ford Europe’s specially designed acoustic test laboratories.

Hobbie, who made a big impression on the X Factor last year, performed self-penned tune “Someone to Love You”.

For his performance, Hobbie chose the Reverberation Room. The room is great for helping to identify the source of any unwanted noise as part of vehicle development where sounds produce a powerful echo, partly because of a room design that ensures no one wall is parallel to another wall. A unique sound for Hobbie’s video.

You can also see how, without noise reduction techniques, a vehicle body shell can act as a giant speaker, first with a tiny music box and then using a recording of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.
