Digital Analysis of Chant Transmission
Digital Analysis of Chant Transmission
Program: Multilateral - other
Project leader: PhDr. Veselovská Eva PhD.
Annotation:In the Digital Analysis of Chant Transmission (DACT) Partnership, we will extend the study of the dissemination of plainchant from localized research focused mostly on Europe and Middle Ages to global research tracing transmission to other continents through to the modern era. To understand how chant travelled and adapted over time and place through oral and written traditions is important for what it can tell us about the communication of culture through the encounter of people and ideas. Yet, data management when dealing with a thousand years of music is major obstacle. To address this problem, DACT will mobilise a large network of people and projects to analyse chant repertories digitally, developing new computational resources in tandem with existing chant databases and digital repositories of Manuscripts. The goal of the DACT Partnership is to build a network of partners and infrastructure to mentor new scholars and build capacity to trace transmission of plainchant not only through Western Europe, but on a global level, between Western Europe and former colonies in the Americas, Africa, and Oceania. OBJECTIVE 1: to establish partnerships with organizations, project leaders, chant scholars, and chant practitioners through development of a new, central digital hub, the Cantus Digital Network (CDN). OBJECTIVE 2: to build infrastructure to address two major gaps in the study of chant through fragmented manuscripts.

Music culture in Central Europe ca. 1450-1650: transregional Identity of the Music Sources from Klosterneuburg and Bratislava
Hudobná kultúra strednej Európy 1450-1650: transregionálna identita hudobných prameňov z Klosterneuburgu a Bratislavy
Program: Mobility
Project leader: Mgr. Studeničová Hana PhD.
Annotation:The main topic of the project is an international survey of music sources (late medieval and early modern) from Bratislava and Klosterneuburg. The importance of the topic and dominant objective of the project resides in international analysis and evaluation of internal and external features and specifics of manuscripts that influenced the ordering, creation, and use of music sources in two cultural and educational centres of Slovakia and Austria in the late medieval and in the 16th and 17th century. Depending on economic, historical, and cultural factors, many cities and cultural institutions (Church institutions) were using valuable musical sources, which reflected several individual elements. The music materials became specific identity bearers of a particular Church institution, city, or even single individuals. Many questions concerning the origin and use of specific codices in Slovakia and Austria remain unanswered to this day. For this reason, international research and comparative processing of materials are a necessary and important step for precise evaluation of sources.
