TRUESOUND – The true sound from the past

133 views

This video about True Sound is part of a package that shows five examples of trans-national EU-funded research projects involving SMEs. This includes both SMEs with their own in-house research capacity and those who need to acquire new knowledge from research service providers such as universities or research organisations. The case studies cover a variety of sectors: food, security, environment, electronics and material engineering.It was the determination to find the authentic sound of organs from the medieval and baroque period which launched the Truesound project, led by experts in metal analysis from the Max Planck Institute in Germany and SMEs specialised in organ manufacture.In Europe alone, there are some 10,000 historical organs, which all have to be restored and maintained. For the restoration or the maintenance of an organ, several kilos of a special alloy are needed: a composition of copper, zinc and sometimes lead that directly influences the musical quality produced by the pipes. All partners work together to find a material identical to that manufactured more than three centuries ago.
