ARCHAEOACUSTICS CONFERENCE

19/02/2014 - 22/02/201418:00
ARCHAEOACUSTICS CONFERENCE

An exciting international multi-disciplinary event that welcomes academics, researchers, musicologists and non-presenting enthusiasts. Anyone can attend. Anticipated presentations include performance, discoveries, observations and science from around the world -- all focused on the Archaeology of Sound. Archaeology has often focused on the visual and on physical objects, although the past was of course not silent. New technology has given us tools for identifying unusual sound behavior of the world's oldest buildings, including Malta’s remarkable megalithic temples. The intent of this conference is to explore the importance of sound in antiquity. We are particularly interested in the role acoustic behavior may have had in the development and design of important architecture and ritual spaces throughout the ancient world, and its possible biological impact on human brain activity. All presentations will be in English. Registration is required.
