Title:An approach into the acoustic evolution of ancient Odea.
Authors:Karampatzakis Panagiotis, Zafranas Vasilios, Karadedos Georgios
Abstract:Ancient Roman Odea, in contrast to ancient Greek ones which were used exclusively for musical events, were roofed buildings used for multiple purposes such as theatrical performances, singing exercises, musical shows and poetry competitions among others and they were designed to be in use all year long, in all weather conditions. They were the closed theaters of the Roman elite which from some point in time onwards could not be contempt with just having privileged seats in the open public theaters. The evolution of the typology of the Odeon is in close relation to the evolution of the large halls of archaic and classical years (such as Telesterion and Bouleuterion), in which there was a permanent trend to move the central pillars to the edges as these were seen as optical and auditory obstructions to the function of the room. This paper examines the variations that have taken place with the evolution of the typology of the odea in the typology (geometry) and the materials of the constructions using mathematical models and sound prediction software analysis.
