Jim Donahue of Berklee’s Music Production and Engineering (MP&E) Department will present “Of Bodies and Spirits,” an interdisciplinary research project aimed at characterizing the acoustical properties of Byzantine churches. The investigation seeks to discover whether the growing importance of chant in liturgy played a role in the transformation of the architectural form of Byzantine churches from longitudinal basilicas to centrally-planned domed structures.
Given unprecedented access to perform acoustical testing in the city of Thessaloniki, Greece, eight churches—ranging from the fifth through the 14th century—were selected, five of which have been preserved nearly intact, including the original decoration. The project’s vision is to make an acoustical museum of Byzantium. In 10,000 years, these structures will likely not be here, but chanters will be able to “time travel” to hear themselves in these structures if their acoustical properties are carefully catalogued.
