Short description:

Since 2007, French ethnomusicologists and Parisson Company have joined their efforts to develop a collaborative web platform for managing and improve access to 40.000 digitized sound archives from the CNRS-Musée de l’Homme collections (http://archives.crem-cnrs.fr/). Today, 23.000 folk music recordings are on free access. This Multimedia Asset Management System is able to produce various visualizations, time-based annotations, semantic segmentation, in order to involve the local communities and the users.

Long description:

For many years, one of CNRS’s objectives is to improve access and to facilitate data sharing to the entire academic community, through a toolbox of open source softwares (HumaNum service). In anthropology, ethnomusicology and linguistics, researchers work on multiple kinds of documents such as sound recordings. The need to preserve and to easily access, visualize and annotate these materials is problematic because of this time-based contents and the increasing quantity of data. With new audio technologies, questions linked to the archiving and the availability of these audio materials have arisen. Since 2007, French ethnomusicologists and Parisson Company have joined their efforts to develop a collaborative web platform for managing and improve access to 40.000 digitized sound archives from the CNRS-Musée de l’Homme collections (http://archives.crem-cnrs.fr/). Today, 23.000 folk music recordings are on free access. Others institutions use this tool: Musical Acoustic Lab (UPMC, CNRS, http://telemeta.lam.jussieu.fr/), National Phonotheque of Tunisia (CMAM, Tunis, http://phonotheque.cmam.tn/), Mexico University (UNAM), Poitiers University, Maison des Cultures du Monde,… This platform, an open-source web audio CMS dedicated to digital sound archives (Telemeta), is developed through the expertise of the Parisson Company. Its architecture is associated with TimeSide, an open-source audio processing framework written in Python and JavaScript languages, which provides decoding, encoding, streaming and annotating capabilities together with an embeddable HTML 5 audio player. Consequently, this CMS is able to produce various visualizations, time-based annotations, segmentation, etc. Since 2013, automatic musicological analysis tools have been also developed in a national interdisciplinary research project (Music Information Retrieval). Furthermore it includes a set of audio analysis plug-in and wraps several audio features extraction libraries. These technologies are shared by a large developer community in audio processing: Queen Mary University, IRCAM, Barcelona University, New York University… The benefits of this collaborative platform apply to numerous aspects of the field of ethnomusicology, ranging from musical analysis to comparative history and anthropology of music, as well as to the fields of anthropology, linguistics and acoustics. Thanks to the i-frame link, many bloggers from various countries, included Asian or African countries, use the player embedded to illustrate their posts: http://bajag-mujabitsi.blogspot.nl/search/label/Ngombi The interface switch automatically in other language: English, German, Spanish, Portugeses, Chinese, Arabic, for a better dissemination in the world. This open archives initiative offer a new way for the repatriation of this world cultural heritage to local population, introducing a new way of relationship. See an interview of an Indonesian user: http://archives.crem-cnrs.fr/archives/items/CNRSMH_I_2016_007_001_01/ The last months, the main trafic comes from bloggers (80%) who use the embedded player from Telemeta. This sound database is also available on Europeana portal.
