The Sound of 18th-Century Paris

The musicologist Mylene Pardoen has recreated the background sound environment of central Paris in the 18th century. The video takes the viewer to the heart of the Grand Châtelet district, between the Pont au Change and Pont Notre Dame bridges.While historical videos with soundtracks are nothing new, this is the first 3D reconstitution based solely on a sonic background: the quality of the sounds (muffled, amplified…) takes into account the heights of the buildings and their construction materials (stone, cob etc.).
