The Echo of the First Recordings
Marija Klobčar, Drago Kunej, Mirko Ramovš, Urša Šivic
The compact disc Odmev prvih zapisov (The Echo of the First Recordings) is a selection of folk song recordings which have been preserved at the Institute of Ethnomusicology at the Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts. The selected songs and their accompanying lyrics give a concise overview of the importance of folk songs from the time of the first recordings to the present day. As the name implies, the compact disc makes it possible to listen to the oldest transcriptions made in various parts of Slovenia, taking us from the earliest sound recordings to today. The mix of folk songs also shows how much of this heritage was still alive and resonant among the common people at the time of recording and demonstrates the advances made in sound recordings. The selection reflects the variety of folk song and instrumental music in both contents and melody.
