SIA Acoustics LLC has added Aditya G. Balani to its consulting team in Hollywood. In his new role at SIA Acoustics, Balani will be responsible for further expanding the company's reach into India, the Middle East and other Asian markets. Balani's responsibilities as an acoustical consultant will include all aspects of building acoustics, including sound isolation design, room acoustics, HVAC noise and vibration control, field acoustical measurements, and sound system design.

Born and raised in Mumbai, India, Balani holds a bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Mumbai, and a master's degree in Acoustics from Pennsylvania State University. Prior to his arrival in the U.S., Balani also worked as an AV Engineer in Mumbai.

Balani's experience includes a wide variety of acoustic design projects spanning the fields of entertainment, education, hospitality, residential, health care, corporate, civic and house of worship. He is also an active member of the Audio Engineering Society.

In announcing the appointment, Sam Berkow says, "We are thrilled to have Aditya with us. His international experience and relationships will be particularly useful in further developing our design and consulting services for India and Southeast Asia."

SIA Acoustics also added Adam Di Angelo to its consulting team in New York City. Di Angelo's focus as an acoustical consultant will include architectural drafting/detailing and room acoustics.

Born and raised on the Jersey shore, Adam holds a B.A. in Architecture and Foreign Languages from Temple University, and an M.S. in Architectural Acoustics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). While at RPI, Di Angelo studied room acoustics, psychoacoustics and sound measurement with distinguished faculty members Ning Xiang and Paul Calamia. For his thesis, Adam studied historically important acoustic venues and their relevance to modern day architectural acoustics.

"I see SIA Acoustics as an industry leader," Di Angelo says. "They are innovators who have a significant impact on the practice of acoustical consulting. I am excited to be a part of it."
