Digital technology brings 2,400-year-old Chinese bells to life

WUHAN, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- The ancient sounds of a set of 2,400-year-old bells are chiming in central China thanks to the wonders of digital technology.

At the 7th China Arts Festival being held in central China's Hubei Province, digital technology has captured the sounds of a precious set of bronze bells and their ancient tones are one of the highlights of the ongoing gala.

Using high-definition microphones, the Hubei Provincial Museum recorded the sounds of the ancient set of bells from the Warring States Period (475-221 B.C.). It transformed them into digital code which was stored in a soundtrack database with the help of midi technology.

The sound of the bells drew great public acclaim when the technology was used to play the Beethoven classic "Ode to Joy" at the festival which is being held in Wuhan and four other Hubei Province cities.

"The duplication took us about four months as the ancient bells were so precious that we had to try our best to strike every bell carefully during the recording," said Zhang Xiang, the person in charge of the bell display at the museum.
