Upcoming event

Acoustic Measurements in Heritage Sites

19 September 2019 6:30pm - 8:00pm

The acoustic revival of heritage sites, studied in Archaeoacoustics, offers an additional element on understanding and accessing our cultural heritage. We can experience the acoustic properties of these spaces and reveal the sound of the past for future generations through Auralization, the audio equivalent to visualization. Focusing on the measurement process, several techniques have been documented on impulse response measurements, including the one stated on the ISO3382 standards, while measurement uncertainties require our attention for the accuracy and reliability of the obtained results.
In this talk, the process used to gather the acoustic data of heritage sites and how they are analysed will be discussed. Examples of recent measurements in heritage sites in West Midlands will be presented and their results will be discussed in terms of acoustical and musicological analysis.Read more
