Digital Innovation and Historic Sound at Linlithgow Palace
The Space, Place, Sound, and Memory: Immersive Experiences of the Past project was led by dr James Cook, in collaboration with the Digital Documentation and Innovation team at Historic Environment Scotland, Soluis Heritage, the Binchois Consort, and scholars at the universities of Birmingham and Melbourne. It used cutting-edge technology to reconstruct the visuals and acoustics of Linlithgow Palace chapel, before situating reconstructions of liturgical music within it. Beginning with HES’ 3D scan of the chapel, the project then used archival, archaeological, and musicological research to bring to life the sights and sounds of the 16th-century chapel. This chapter explores how Digital Documentation can be harnessed in the production of innovative interpretation and research material.
