This project contributed to spreading the cultural heritage of European ethnic music stored in analogue audio documents by extending and cementing links between scientific institutions across Europe: a) meetings, concerts and conferences in Italy (Gorizia and Treviso), Slovenia (Ljubljana) and Austria (Wien); b) Internet discussion forum and PODCasting system. INET-MD contributed to the elaboration of the methodology for the preservation and restoration of audio documents as well as to the on-line system for the fruition of audio materials. The Institute's team also located and inventoried endangered recordings of traditional music and analyzed archived musical materials in order to highlight aspects within different cultures.
