Teotihuacan Virtual Sound Map: Exploring the Sonic Sphere of the City of the Gods, Mexico

Project description

Science and technology bring back sounds of Teotihuacan

Teotihuacan in central Mexico, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is one of the most impressive cultural sites in the World. In the first half of the first millennium CE, the local civilisation dominated Mesoamerica with its huge population. Nowadays, excavations allow us to admire relics discovered by archaeologists but many mysteries remain. Thanks to new technology, it is now possible to search characteristic sounds of the Teotihuacan. The EU-funded TVSM project will recreate 15 original musical instruments and test their sound in the laboratory and several urban placements. The project will also develop an interactive virtual sound-map with multimedia. It will create a website, publish its findings, hold workshops and participate in two international conferences on the subject.
