Description

This unique book is based on a workshop for an international group of administrators of research based archives held near New Delhi in December 1999, the aim of which was to bring together archivists from industrializing countries which have a relatively recent history of audiovisual archives, principally from the Southern Hemisphere; to take concerns of audiovisual archives outside the national and regional boundaries that so often define them; and to focus on audiovisual archives that document musical and folklore traditions or ethnomusicology.

Pooling the experience of participants from Austria, Australia, China, Cuba, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Peru, The Philippines, South Africa, Sudan, and the United States, the volume will be of interest to cultural workers both as an introductory textbook in ethnomusicology courses and as a book for specialists.

The book begins with a theoretical introduction, including general observations on archives, a discussion of the principal points in the participant papers, a description of the workshop itself, and how the process of the workshop has been transformed into this volume. Section One deals with archive structure and operations, including a chapter on recording technology which begins with a paper by the world-renowned expert in technology for audiovisual archives, Dr Dietrich Schuler, Director of the Vienna Phonogramm-Archiv, Austria, the oldest such archive in the world; and one on issues of copy-right and ethics by Grace Koch. Section Two consists of the participants papers. The volume also includes useful material such sample agreement forms, a bibliography of major resources on audiovisual archives, and a website list of the most important professional organizations and archive sites.

Dr Dietrich Schuller (Vienna, Austria), Don Niles (Papua New Guinea), Alex Huerta (Peru), Ali Al-Daw (Sudan), Maxwell Addo (Ghana), Marialita Tamanio-Yraola (Philippines), To Ngoc Thanh (Vietnam), Valmont Layne (South Africa), Endo Suanda (Indonesia) Gert-Matthias Wegner (Nepal), J Lawrence Witzleben and Tsui Ying-Fai (China), Olavo Alen (Cuba), Grace Koch (Australia).
