The Cave and Church in Tomba Emmanuelle. Some Notes on the Ritual Use of Room Acoustics. (2017)

Petter Snekkestad

About this exposition

This article explores the acoustics of the Emanuel Vigeland Mausoleum through an associative history of reverberation. In particular, the sensory combination of reverberation and the fresco Vita in the darkened mausoleum echoes that of sound experiences in painted prehistoric caves and medieval churches. I will also touch upon the notion of demarcation as a third ritual effect in these spaces.
