Fonoteca de materials Collection

The FONOTECA DE MATERIALS collection offers a sound recording compilation of traditional Valencian music accompanied by scholarly studies and analysis. The materials have been compiled and recorded on-the-spot, as their natural interpreters performed them in the course of work or festival activities, or in specific celebrations related to the natural cycles of the year.

No after-the-fact manipulation to add or re-do any elements of the original performances has taken place. The technical deficiencies in some of the recordings, as well as the limitations of the performance in some cases, are an inevitable consequence in any kind of fieldwork.

In addition to its value as a sound recording archive, the present project intends to protect the richness of our traditions.
