Identification, evaluation and revival of the acoustical heritage of ancient theatres and odea

Objective

The Greek and Roman theatres are among the most precious and spectacular items of cultural heritage in the Mediterranean countries. The main objectives of this research are identification, virtual restoration and revival of the acoustical heritage in a few, selected examples of the theatre and the roofed odium in a 3Dvirtual environment. The virtual restitution will integrate the visual and acoustical simulations, and will be based on the most recent results of researching archaeology, theatre history, clothing, performance and early music. The innovative elements in this project include a new technique for simulation of moving sound sources, i.e. the players, chorus and musicians, and the integration of visualization and naturalization. The simulation tool developed in this project will also serve as a basis for recommendations for the modern use of the old performance facilities.
