Digital Preservation and Access to Aural Heritage Via A Scalable, Extensible Method


Preserved acoustics can be reproduced virtually through a process called computational auralization.

Auralizations enable sensory access to reconstructed aural heritage via digital audio technologies.

Our scalable process transforms aural heritage data into immersive listening experiences optimized for distinct audio environments.

Auralizations on this website are scaled for individual listening over headphones or earbuds:
Binaural Auralization #1: Music Row Recording Studio (Nashville) vs. 19th-century Byzantine Revival Bank (Rochester)
Comparison of Two Case-Study Perspectives: Centralized Sound Source with Close Listener

We are also producing multichannel auralizations for demonstrations in public listening spaces.
