Cultural heritage of Suleymanyie mosque

Suleymanyie mosque was modelled as part of the CAHRISMA project (Conservation of the Acoustical Heritage by the Revival and Identification of the Sinan’s Mosques Acoustics). Suleymanyie Mosque has an approximate volume of 105000 m3 and reverberation time of 6.4 sec (1000 Hz).

Measurements were simulated in 30 source-receiver pairs – taking a look around the room, sources are red spheres and receivers blue.

Below is a comparison of in-situ recordings vs. auralisations, made as part of the CAHRISMA project.

  • In-situ recording: The singer or “imam” was recorded on location.
  • Auralisation with in-situ recorded impulse response: The binaural impulse response was obtained using a sweep-based measuring system. 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.
