ArchaeoAcoustics is the new and exciting multidisciplinary research approach that studies the acoustic properties in archaeological sites. This new audio acoustic perspective analyzes archaeological sites for their unusual sound characteristics. This presentation will not look at the acoustic properties of medieval cathedrals but will rather focus on natural acoustic phenomena of caves and rock walls and the special, unusual sound occurrences in different Neolithic and other less ancient sites.
What is it that acoustically makes Sacred Sites or Power Places so special? View pictures of many of my favorite sites from around the world accompanied by discussion of their ArchaeoAcoustic qualities. We will look at the sound qualities of these sites: Echo, Reverberation, Resonance, Entrainment, and 110 Hz.
Do these unique acoustic properties impact our Mind, Body and Spirit? Intriguing pilot studies show findings that suggest that the acoustic properties of ancient structures may influence human brain function. It is now possible to record infrasonic and ultrasonic frequencies at these sites in addition to the audible sounds. Might these frequencies create what we think of as healing spaces/energies?
Ongoing research will focus on investigating the role acoustic behavior may have had in the development and design of important architecture of ritual spaces throughout the ancient world’s sacred sites. Taking a multidisciplinary look at early sonic/aural awareness and lithic sound behavior, will move us towards a better understanding of human and music development.
