A professor in Nashville has received a $350,000 grant for a study that seeks to digitally replicate the acoustics of historic structures, including Music Row Studios.
Music Row Studios is where some monster music hits have been recorded including “Crying” by music legend Roy Orbison.
The study will help to establish protocols for preserving the aural heritage of culturally significant sites and will including a 3-thousand year-old archaeological site in Peru.
The second step of the study will be creating virtual acoustics using the captured data via digital audio technologies.
