Ionian University invites all interested parties to participate in the Information Day of the TRUMPET project, which will be held in person at the Ionian Academy (Akadimias & Kapodistriou Str., Corfu), on Wednesday, September 7, 2022 at 16:00 with free admission for the public.
The TRUMPET project entitled: "Digital platform for the Promotion of the Musical Heritage of Corfu" is co-financed by the European Union and is implemented within the framework of the Operational Program "Ionian Islands 2014-2020". The main actions of the project include the development of digital services for recording, organizing and promoting music assets related to Corfu (scores, musical material, concert programs, etc) with the aim of informing the public about the musical culture of the island. As part of the project, more than 800 music assets from 8 organizations have already been collected and digitally registered. In addition, the research team of the Ionian University, based on the literature, categorized the registered assets into four (4) distinct and interrelated thematic "musical paths" that highlight the musical culture of the island.
Under the auspices of the project the research team developed a central digital repository, an interactive search and presentation online digital platform and a "smart" mobile phone application, through which all interested users - visitors – may, in a direct and easy-to-use way, search and view the registered collections and stream a selected set of the collected multimedia files. All the basic documentation of the music assets (description, metadata, etc) is provided in 4 additional languages (English, French, Italian and German) besides Greek.
The activities carried out within the project constitute the first attempt to gradually collect the musical cultural heritage of Corfu in a central digital repository while at the same time providing open access to all interested parties through an umbrella of digital services covering a wide range of musical cultural content and promoting the richness and diversity of the musical heritage of Corfu. Moreover, the developed digital services provide a fundamental instrument and a pool of links for cultural/ musical bodies, who may be able to promote/ exploit their music content throughout the duration of the project and beyond its contractual duration.
