SPACE / ARCHITECTURE SOUND / ACOUSTICS
ARCHAEOLOGY / ANTHROPOLOGY
These three facets are the foundation of Archaeoacoustics.
We are interested in the human experience of sound in heritage ceremonial and ritual places.
CREATIVE INTERPRETIVE EXHIBITION
with the kind support of the
Archaeoacoustics studies the way sound behaves in ancient enclosed spaces, how early humankind may have used it and the implications of architectural manipulation. “The most significant factor in this field is its multi-disciplinary aspect,” explains conference organizer Linda C. Eneix, “a phenomenon that at first seems like pseudo-science to an archaeologist becomes abundantly clear when it is explained by a physicist, and an architect brings a totally fresh perspective. A rock art specialist can help us see details that could easily be overlooked by the untrained eye. Something that musicologists have known for years takes on new meaning when it is applied to ancient social structure and lifestyle.”

By consensus of the participants of the highly successful third International multi-disciplinary conference on Archaeoacoustics, a full-blown professional organization is being formed to carry forward the dedicated scientific discipline of study in this compelling subject area.
More news about this exciting development will be forthcoming.
