ERC Artsoundscapes project – Dataset for "Arte Rupestre: una perspectiva desde los paisajes sonoros"


Data collected in the framework of the ERC project "The sound of special places: exploring rock art soundscapes and the sacred" (acronym: Artsoundscapes, Grant Agreement No. 787842). The project focuses on the relationship between archaeoacoustics and rock art. The attached files correspond to 1) the audio files of the impulse responses collected at the rock art sites of Sandra shelter (Kamberg, South Africa), and Bamboo Hollow III and Wilcox shelter (Giant’s Castle, South Africa), all of them in the Drakensberg mountain range, 2) the corresponding ambient sounds registered on each of the three sites, 3) the resulting audio tracks when the ambient sound is reproduced in the immersive audio laboratory of the Faculty of Psychology, and 4) a Matlab script for the extraction of the psycoacoustical parameters presented on the publication.

Raw recordings and other formats of impulse responses are also available on request. For any further information about this research, please contact with PI Margarita Díaz-Andreu, ( )
