4 Acoustic heritage archiving
Commercial libraries exist.... Tend to feature concert halls
My rationale: there are none that first reason to exist is for the purpose of ecology and preservation
The university of York, to name 1 have a research department dedicated to digital heritage, Damian Murphy is a contributor
I wanted to find out if there was a potentially wider community of users of such archives other than just audio professionals
From an anthropological point of view might an archive reverb characteristics taken in historic buildings be of interest to
Archaeologists, historians, architects, musicologists and anthropologists
And if so how might they use such a digital archive and what would a user interface for accessing that data?
These are the potential "Our" in my title.............. a community of potential users, fellow researchers etc...
Social research would be required in the preliminary research
