This is a unique innovative design project that its scope is to reconstruct different versions of the ancient music instrument known as “lyre”, based on the study of ancient sources and current research papers. The goal is to reintroduce the “Lyre of God Hermes” and the “Lyre of God Apollo” to the global market of professional musicians, replica’s collectors and admirers of the ancient Greek civilization.
By combining expert’s experience and latest technology in different fields –such as traditional luthiers, 3d scanning and printing equipment (provided by the International Hellenic University, Thessaloniki), 3d drawing software packages, audio engineers and researchers, an anechoic chamber at the Electronic Media Lab (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) etc., this video explains in brief how the first lyres were actually being produced and how they were tested so as to scientifically define their sound quality.
Last, all the presented research data and theories were applied in practice, as among the deliverables of this design project are actual and top-quality different versions of the lyre: the “Chelys Lyre 2.0” and the “Barbiton Lyre 2.0”.
