                Matthew Ottley is an Associate and Managing Consultant with the Sydney office specialising in environmental noise control, building acoustics and room acoustics. He graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) with Honours and has been working in consulting acoustics in Sydney since 1998.
                “As an acoustic consultant my job is not just about acoustics, it is mostly about communication and collaboration. The acoustics for a project (even a concert hall or studio) is only one component of what goes into making a space work, of solving a problem. What I do is collaborate with architects, planners, developers, builders and designers to find solutions to problems and to make things work.”
                Matthew also produces a podcast, Talking Acoustics, which looks into the art and science of acoustics as features interviews with a different person in the acoustics field each episode. See for details.
