This project delves into the tonal range of the Bronze Age Celtic instrument, the Dord, using a frequency map from a 3,000-year-old horn. Rendered in 3D by Billy O Foghlu, the ancient Celtic horn used in this exploration dates back to 3,000 BCE. The goal is to uncover how ancient societies utilized specific frequencies for brain entrainment and sonic inscription through ancient instruments and ritual sites. By blending traditional Irish melodies with contemporary and ancient sounds, this project transcends linear time boundaries. It showcases how oral traditions, spanning centuries, shape cultural identity and expression. Through contemporary sound design, the project aims to preserve and transmit cultural identity to future generations, ensuring the continuity of sonic inscription as a carrier of people's identity.
