Note: They discuss the need to write for a collector's permission before citing his work. For works published by Folkways they need to contact Peter Bartok, Bela Bartok's son, who works for Folkways. A discussion of theoretical questions connected with coding. Example: Criteria for determining if choral group has a leader. Other units: two choruses following one another. Any singer heard by him/herself in a group of singers is considered an individual component. Victor Grauer: No person can be counted more than once regardless of role change in song. Alan Lomax: What happens when there are six or seven choruses interacting over period of many hours? In the coding book a component must have a musically significant independent role, not causually dropping out. Criteria for determining rhythmic complexity include: simultaneity, distinctive, equal, overlay, and alternation. Other criteria: phrase level versus strophe level| European strophe versus Arctic/Asian strophe (you have to listen carefully for Lapp strophe). Victor Grauer: Some songs are alternation of litany and strophe. Signals indicating separation and gestalt. Kinds of cue include up-glide and down-glides. Mention of Christmas at the end of conversation suggests this may have taken place in December.
