Icons of Sound: Hagia Sophia Reimagined
Take a virtual journey to Hagia Sophia, Constantinople’s Great Church, when the renowned choir Cappella Romana returns to the Bing to continue its collaboration with Stanford’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) and its Art and Art History department. CCRMA will digitally imprint Hagia Sophia’s reverberant acoustics on Cappella Romana’s sublime Byzantine chant, complemented by visuals designed to create a totally immersive experience. Faculty experts in art, music, and technology lead the audience through this acoustic and aesthetic journey in time.
Copresented by the Department of Art and Art History and the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics. Generously supported by the Office of the Provost. Additional support provided by the Onassis Foundation (USA) and the School of Humanities and Sciences Dean’s Office
