Abstract l.jpg
Abstract

The paper presents the main aspects of an ongoing project aimed at the development of technologies for digitization of Bulgarian folk music and building a heterogeneous digital library with Bulgarian folk songs presented with their music, notes and text. The digitization of sound recordings and notations of folk music will facilitate the access to them, will provide their preservation in another quality and will present the opportunity for these recordings and notations to be used by a greater number of users through web-based access.

The digital library will provide both digital preservation of the sound recordings and notations of Bulgarian folk songs and a possibility for new interpretations of the archaic Bulgarian folklore heritage. Information technologies for presentation of Bulgarian folk songs is an interdisciplinary project, which imposes a specific research approach, combining the plurality and dialogue of a multitude of viewpoints, positions and perspectives.

Introduction l.jpg
Introduction of the sound recordings and notations of Bulgarian folk songs and a possibility for new interpretations of the archaic Bulgarian folklore heritage.

  • Digital preservation of scientific and cultural heritage

  • Digital librariesand tools for access to their content

  • Project “Information Technologies for Presentation of Bulgarian Folk Songs with Music, Notes and Text in a Digital Library”: Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Institute of Folklore Studies, Institute of Art Studies (BAS); Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics (Sofia University)

Necessity of Digitization of Manuscripts (Music Notations and Lyrics) and Recordings of Bulgarian Folk Music

  • Bulgarian folk music: a valuable resource of cultural memory; among the main characteristics of the national identity of Bulgarian people

  • Existence of hundreds of thousands of musical folk samples (songs and instrumental melodies)written down in lyrics and notes by Bulgarian researchers of musical folklore

Some achievements in digitization of folk music l.jpg
Some Achievements in Digitization of Folk Music Bulgarian folk music is only on paper

  • The “Multimedia database for Bulgarian folk music” of the Institute of Art Studies of BAS: of more than 15 000 records of song lyrics, analyses of ethno-musicologists, audio recordings, music notes and photographs and videos of Bulgarian folk music

  • The project EthnoARC: provides a valuable experience, which reveals how it is possible to systematically present in linked archives the otherwise heterogeneous ethnomusicological archives in the cities of Berlin, Budapest, Geneva and Bucharest with the help of information technologies

Digitization of manuscripts and books and creation of a database with bulgarian folk songs l.jpg
Digitization of Manuscripts and Books and Creation of a Database with Bulgarian Folk Songs

  • LilyPond: a system for digitization of music records under GNU license

  • Technology for coding of note records from original manuscripts with field recordings of Bulgarian folk songs

  • Technology for scanning of printed books with BFS and OCR of the notation in them

Slide9 l.jpg

  • Creation, support and completion of a database for preservation of notes, lyrics and music recordings of BFS

    Basic componentsof the DB:

    • Notations of songs in LilyPond format

    • Lyrics of songs together with additional information for the researcher, place and date of the research, name of the researcher, notes from the researcher

    • Musical (MP3) files with an authentic performance of the song and musical files generated from notations with LilyPond system

Conclusions and future work l.jpg
Conclusions and Future Work music

  • A multidisciplinary work, with the information technologies having the leading role for obtaining scientific results

  • Special attention will be paid to research dedicated to the creation of new methods and means for generating hypothesis and extraction of knowledge in the sphere of folkloristics

  • The complete and up-to-date digitization – notes, lyrics, music – will complete and further develop the achieved results in terms of preserving the Bulgarian folklore. The application of European standards in the process will provide for the incorporation of the Bulgarian cultural heritage to the world’s attainments in the area
