Documentation des traditions musicales au Vanuatu : Création et vie des archives à l’ère numérique

Abstract : Vanuatu archipelago, in Melanesia, is noteworthy for its linguistic and cultural diversity. From 2005 to 2008, a linguist, an anthropologist and an ethnomusicologist investigated on musical practices about which very little was known in the North of country. This project allowed us to create a rich corpus of digital audio, photo and video data documenting dances, music, and sung poems from this area. This corpus deposited in institutional archives in Vanuatu and France, it generated a publication of a documentary film (The Poet’s Salary, 2009), an audio CD (Music of Vanuatu : celebrations and mysteries, 2013) and a digital booklet at free access. Since some years, the massive arrival of digital technologies in Vanuatu, in particular mobile phones, brings new ways of conservation and dissemination for music recordings like those we have gathered. In our presentation we will discuss new possibilities that technological development brings in preservation and transmission of musical heritage.
