New Life for Old Tunes
Dear Friends/ A Chairde,
The latest set of interactive music scores is now available on our new-look website. It consists of the next 100 tunes from Ryan’s Mammoth Collection, published in Boston in the 1880s. Due to the large number of scores now available it is necessary to split the collection into separate ‘books’. Thus the tunes uploaded today are featured in Ryan’s Mammoth Collection 300 – 400. In November 2010 we launched this feature on the Irish Traditional Music Archive website – interactive music scores. These are music notations that you can not only view on screen but also play back in lots of user-friendly ways. You can start, pause and stop playback anywhere you want in a score, skip forwards or backwards quickly in it, change its playback tempo or change its key. An ideal learning environment! ITMA will be regularly adding more notations from historic music collections to this area for you to enjoy, using Sibelius’s Scorch software.
A major revision and redesign of our website has been carried out over the last few months by ITMA staff working in conjunction with the Dublin web-design company Birdie.
