Singing the Future: Repatriation of legacy song records and new technologies for music vitality
2016–2020 Singing the Future: Implications and significance of repatriation of legacy song records and new technologies for music vitality
Australian Research Council Future Fellowship – Sally Treloyn
Music endangerment presents a crisis for local and global societies, due to the critical role that musical vitality plays in maintaining human diversity and sustainability. Repatriation of legacy song records has been a key research intervention used to address this crisis. Singing the Future will investigate the effectiveness of legacy records and new technologies for their dissemination in the task of supporting musical vitality via cross-national research in Australia and Uganda. The project aims to advance knowledge about musical vitality and resilience, developing tools to better sustain endangered indigenous musics for the benefit of cultural heritage communities, Australia and the world.
