THE MUSIC IN THE MEDITERRANEAN

The search and the selection of the material were done with the help of companies, musicologists and research institutions. For the Arabian traditional music the companies OCORA, INEDIT, Institut de Monde, Arab and Blue Silver were those that helped us make our choices. For the Persian music we had the help of CERESHME and NAVAL, for the Turkish music, KALAN and ADA, for Jewish and the Romany music, the NETWORK and WERGO, for the Greek music the Institute of Melpos Merlie, Simona Karra, Likeio Ellinidon, University of Crete, the folkloric Institute of Peloponnesus and the companies MINOS, EMI and LYRA. For the Spanish music and the pre-classic tradition we cooperated with the following companies Harmonia Mundi, Musique du Monde, Naïve and the fine shop Flamenco Vivo. There were also co operations with the companies Real World, Pivanha and World village.

Guides for our choices were:

  • Music information throughout the years
  • The fact that we gathered a considerable amount of information on the religious music of the Mediterranean (Byzantine, Egyptian, Hebrew, Sufi, Moslem, Catholic) and its influence from different religious music of other geographical areas
  • The research of musical influences and currents which is greater than the geographical limits of modern states (Romany, Pre-Classic, Arabian, Byzantine)
  • The recording of the influences in the Mediterranean area (ex. the Byzantine in Slavic music, the Arabian in Persian and Indian, the Romany in Balkans and in Spain, the Arabo-Andalusian in the classical European music etc)

There is extensive information on the activation of the music companies in the Mediterranean music and plenty of DVDs, especially with vigorous music and intense dancing (ex. flamenco).

Our aim is, in the next two years, to save in digital form the music as well as the information on the most important musical editions, as they are printed in small shaped books of many pages, and to create brief and representative electronic chapters with educational orientation and to connect the guest house’s rooms with the central unit, so as to enable the guests to enjoy the music of their liking from their very own rooms. There are technical possibilities to copy the pieces of music that the visitors will choose and to create selections from several kinds of music. What we would also like, is the creation of a group of fans of the Mediterranean music and the contact they will have via the internet where they will exchange music messages. The main aspiration of the centre is the organization of music festivals, the cooperation with cultural associations of the middle and upper education and the attempt to enjoy vivid and free educational experiences. We would like to address our proposal to create a digit radio station to possible partners.
