Klezmer Institute Digital Humanities Projects: Klezmer Archive Project & the Kiselgof-Makonovetsky Digital Manuscript Project (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Klezmer Institute Digital Humanities Projects: Klezmer Archive Project & the Kiselgof-Makonovetsky Digital Manuscript Project
Author: Christina Crowder
Abstract: Abstract: In this paper we argue that both klezmer music and the Yiddish language are not simply historical artifacts, but the loci of thriving contemporary interest communities and that creating digital structures tailored to the needs of these communities is a clear imperative that matches the need to design for academic best practice in the digital humanities space. The Klezmer Archive Project and the Kiselgof-Makonovetsky Digital Manuscript Project (KMDMP) present a unique opportunity to create digital spaces that support culture bearers, and to develop high-quality, authoritative resources for newcomers to the field. Both of these projects have been the unlikely beneficiaries of Coronavirus-related lockdowns in unexpected ways. The Klezmer Archive functions as a distributed team, and much of the communal work, exchange, learning, and events in the KMDMP take place in zoom rooms.

Archiving Music Based in Oral Tradition: The Klezmer Archive Project (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Archiving Music Based in Oral Tradition: The Klezmer Archive Project
Author: Christina Crowder
Author: Clara Byom
Author: Eleonore Biezunski
Abstract: Documentation of music based in oral tradition is inherently complicated: unknown composers, inconsistent names, multiple versions, and overlapping genres stretch the limits of archival taxonomies. To address these issues, the Klezmer Archive Project is investigating ways to structure corpus-specific metadata and to build tools for curated user contributions within a flexible architecture, showing relationships between items, linking multiple recordings, tune variations, and shared melodic material and any other user-identified relationship artifact-to-artifact. This presentation will relay the project team's findings in its first year of work, including UX research with community members, music encoding considerations in the case study materials, and further thoughts on corpus-specific metadata ontologies for music based in oral tradition.
