Looking at Archival Sound: Visual features of a spoken word archive’s web interface that enhance the listening experience

  1. 1. Looking at Archival Sound: Visual features of a spoken word archive’s web interface that enhance the listening experience Annie Murray Jared Wiercinski Concordia University Montreal, Quebec, Canada September 5, 2011 International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA) 42nd Annual Conference Digital Sense and Nonsense: Digital Decision Making in Sound and Audiovisual Collections Frankfurt, Germany, 3-8 September 2011

  3. 3. Scholarly value of spoken word archives <ul><li>Charles Bernstein argues that poetry readings: </li></ul><ul><li>… have been regarded largely as extensions or supplements of the visual text of the poem. Indeed, there has been very little critical work on the poet’s performance of a poem: at least, up until very recently, literary criticism has pretty much been confined to the printed text. </li></ul><ul><li>The reason for this is practical as much as conceptual. While archives of poetry recordings exist, they are largely inaccessible. Very few editions of poets’ sound recordings have been published. As a result, basic principles of textual scholarship have not yet been applied to the sound archive. But the times ‘they are a-changin’ (Bernstein, 2009, p. 964). </li></ul>
