À la recherche d'une méthode d'analyse pour des chants monodiques du Vanuatu

Abstract : This article summarizes the results obtained in the analytical part of my Ph.D thesis entitled: Women, mats and music on Pentecost Island (Vanuatu). This part was analytical in nature and aimed to understand and to describe the musical system underlying this music. A corpus was established from the transcriptions of the songs collected and recorded during field research. This article presents the steps that have been undertaken in order to propose an analytical methodology. After an introductory part which discusses the issues related to the musical analysis of the raw sound material, I present different analytical methods that existed at the time and which inspired me (Brăiloiu, Chenoweth, etc.). I then discuss the adaptations I made in order to find relevant approaches for the corpus under consideration. The analytical results inspired Professor Nicolas Meeùs to create ‘Monika’, a melodic analysis software. 2020 Monika STERN, « A la recherche d’une méthode d’analyse pour des chants monodiques du Vanuatu » Musurgia, Vol.XXVII/1, pp.9-34.
