Computers create sound of ancient harp

The ASTRA (Ancient instruments Sound/Timbre Reconstruction Application) project has produced the sound of a Epigonion, a wooden string instrument similar to a modern-day harp. This is the first time that this ancient instrument has been heard by modern man.

The international project depended on cooperation from specialists in a number of countries.
