Digital Preservation and Access to Aural Heritage Via A Scalable, Extensible Method
This project was formed to develop, test, and share aural heritage preservation, translation, and access technologies via three detailed case study applications and associated outreach projects, producing:
1) a translatable aural heritage data (acoustics + auditory perspective) collection protocol for long-term preservation and virtual representations of this intangible form of cultural heritage;
2) a method for processing aural heritage data into scalable auralizations (reconstructions for listening) that translate across audio reproduction platforms of different sizes and configurations;
3) tutorials and extensibility pathways for other researchers to implement these methodologies, to include instructed workshop events, web-based tutorials, and other publicly accessible project products and resources.
