Total screen & local music

In a digital world, what (r)evolutions in mediation, transmission and creation practices for oral tradition music?

Drom has devoted three years of research to the design of an educational portal for modal music, a digital medium for knowledge and learning of this oral tradition music. Several other projects for websites or online services centered on traditional music have also been carried out by other players, or are in the process of being finalised.

The 5th symposium of the Drom modality cluster will bring together researchers, musicians and music transmitters, but also specialists in new technologies and educational sciences, to explore the implications and perspectives of these initiatives and achievements, and more overall the relationship between oral and digital music.

The first day, in plenary, will alternate scientific communications and professional round tables and will successively address the themes of transmission, creation, mediation and research in ethnomusicology. Issues specific to each of these fields will thus be addressed.
However, the whole day will make it possible to question in a transversal way what is experienced more and more through the filter of information and communication technologies, in the universe of music qualified as traditional, from the world , local, modal, popular, vernacular, community,... What specificities of this music compared to digital? How to think about the apparent contradiction between promises of valorization and dangers of standardization? What place for digital music archives? ...

An additional morning will allow participants to participate in workshops related to what will have been discussed during the day in plenary.
