The Small ethnomusicological vocabulary by scholar Walter Brunetto

Walter Brunetto“At first, inescapable question (why bother to prepare a vocabulary of terms of ethnomusicological interest?) Connect more specific methodological questions: what criteria to discern the lexicon of interest from non-relevant? How to describe adequately the concepts which the individual terms refer? How to save the relationship between text, music, a style to a context, an occasion, a function when each of these variables may be used or not in situations similar or completely different?”.

With this background, goes out “Small ethnomusicological vocabulary. Shapes, styles, repertoires and contexts of Italian music of oral tradition”. The author is Walter Brunetto, a member of the Scientific Committee of the Network Sound Archives, engaged since the early nineties in a job of scanning and cataloging of Sound Archives in the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.

The volume is a useful contribution, both for experts and for those who want to get closer to the ethnomusicological materials for not scientific purposes. As you can read in the introduction, “this work is a first contribution towards survey and define formally the vocabulary commonly used in the Italian music of oral tradition, for which they are considered, in summary mode of a vocabulary, meaning, scope of use, formal structure and main correlations”.
