EuropeanaTech is organizing a webinar on ACOUSTIC, and the preservation and presentation of historic acoustic spaces.
Technologies related to acoustics offer many opportunities to cultural heritage, and they are important records to preserve; researchers across the world are recording and documenting the acoustic profile of historic spaces to ensure that their characteristics can live on should these spaces be demolished or destroyed. Furthermore, once these spaces are documented, modern technologies can allow the sound of these spaces to be reused by musicians and sound designers without them having to visit these specific sites or they can be presented in different virtual exhibitions, offering visitors the opportunity to exist in these historic spaces from their own home with just a pair of a headphones. Lastly, as more research is compiled, much like 3D imaging technology and AI offer, we will be able to recreate the sound of specific historic sites that no longer exist.
The webinar is free and will be hold on the 15th November at 10:30am CEST - registration and more information available here
