COMMUNICATION THEORY AND DATABASES FOR MUSICOLOGICAL RESEARCH CASE STUDY: NATIONAL RADIOTELEVISION ARCHIVE FOR CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL MUSIC
This paper will focus on the communication theory applied in order to form the methodology used in revealing aspects of the Contemporary Classical Music landscape in Greece, in the digital era. The main goals were to structure the qualitative research and to create a conduct of communication in order to present all pieces of information recorded from three different sources: The Contemporary Classical Music Archive (scores and parts hosted at the National Radio-Television of Greece) combined with primary (Oral History Project) and secondary (bibliography) data. All these sources contained information about the compositions, facts about the composers’ life as well as their idiom and way of thinking. Linking flexibly primary and secondary data and turning them into a valuable source for researchers and stakeholders, beyond any geographical limits, has been considered of utmost importance. Outcome of this research was the construction of a MySQL data base, designed to contain all afore-mentioned Linked Data, as well as a web platform open to controlled feedback. This new communication path might contribute to the re-definition of future artistic choices, relationships and directions of the composers and their audience.
