MAR had the opportunity to record in the Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni, thanks to the generosity Heritage Malta, the only prehistoric underground tomb in the world, and a world heritage site. The Hypogeum has amazing acoustics, as it is carved out of stone, with stone walls, and is sealed underground, all noises reverberating and sustaining hugely. We were luck enough to work with eminent singer Iegor Reznikoff, who many regard as the father of archaeoacoustics. His work on the acoustics of prehistoric painted caves inspired many others to explore archaeology and acoustics. You can hear him singing on the recordings page here.
