Sound Hounds: How One Research Team Is Helping Preserve the Acoustics of Historic Places (Web Resources)
Title: Sound Hounds: How One Research Team Is Helping Preserve the Acoustics of Historic Places
Author: Nicholas Som
Abstract: The National Trust for Historic Preservation profiled the NEH-Funded Research project case-study aural heritage research conducted in May 2019 at Columbia Studio A on Nashville's Historic Music Row. The research project, co-organized by Doyuen Ko (an associate professor of audio engineering technology at Belmont University), Sungyoung Kim (an associate professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology) and Miriam Kolar (a visiting scholar from Amherst College), will produce public demonstrations of aural heritage and provide tools for other researchers to do the same.

Team receives grant to recreate the ‘sound signature’ of cultural heritage sites (Web Resources)
Title: Team receives grant to recreate the ‘sound signature’ of cultural heritage sites
Author: Michelle Cometa
Abstract: Advanced audio technologies being developed are helping to preserve the unique sounds of historic sites from recording studios in Nashville, Tenn., to a pre-Columbian archeological site in Peru. Sungyoung Kim, an associate professor of audio engineering technology at Rochester Institute of Technology, is leading a team of researchers to develop a set of tools using advanced augmented and virtual reality technology to preserve and replicate the acoustics of historical venues. The project would bring attention to the overlooked work in preserving aural heritage.

Belmont Faculty to Research Digital Preservation of Music Row Studios’ Aural Heritage (Web Resources)
Title: Belmont Faculty to Research Digital Preservation of Music Row Studios’ Aural Heritage
Author: April Hefner
Abstract: Dr. Doyuen Ko, colleagues receive $350,000 National Endowment of Humanities grant to replicate acoustics of historic structures. Ko, along with co-principal investigator Dr. Sungyoung Kim (RIT) and aural heritage consultant Dr. Miriam Kolar, research how building acoustics influence human experience, particularly in religious, performance and other public gathering spaces. The researchers will develop, test and share their aural heritage process via three case studies, which represent culturally, architecturally and temporally distinct examples of endangered aural heritage.
