Auralisations compared to in-situ recordings

Auralization was compared with recordings as part of the CAHRISMA project. The different rooms presented are the Sokullu mosque, the Süleymaniye mosque and the Saint Irene Byzantine church. The reverberation in these rooms range from around 3 to 8 seconds. To benefit from the binaural quality, headphones must be used.

Two types of in-situ recordings are presented as a reference for the modelled auralisation:

  • In-situ recording: The singer or imam were recorded on location.
  • Auralisation With in-situ recorded impulse response: The binaural impulse response was obtained using a sweep based measuring system. The responses were convolved with anechoic signals. The sound source used for recording of the binaural room impulse responses acts as a low-pass filter and high frequency information is missing from these sound examples
