EBB-consult

Eddy Bøgh Brixen has worked as a consultant in the field of acoustics and electro acoustics since 1975 when first employed with the Danish Technological Institute, Acoustics Dept., and later at Danish Acoustical Institute and DELTA, Danish Electronics, Light and Acoustics.

Since 2002 he has continued this work as an independent consultant with EBB-consult. This work has been combined with teaching at major educational institutions in Denmark.

EBB-consult is basically a one-man company. However, being independent provides the opportunity to select corporation partners, such as fellow acousticians, architects, contractors, project managers, etc.

Eddy Bøgh Brixen was the co-author of a standard for sound in Danish Cinemas (Anbefalinger til Biograflyd - Recommendations for Cinema Sound) and a part of the Nordtest Standards Committee for NT ACOU 108: In situ measurements of permanently installed public address systems. He is the co-author of “Akustik og lyd der bevæger” – Acoustics and sound that moves (published by Lokale- og Anlægsfonden). He holds the chair of Audio Engineering Society, Technical Committee on Microphones and Applications. He is the author of a number of text books of which one is pub.
