Description:Wiji Ampetyane's tyepetye (sand drawing and narrative, includes alternate register speech styles)
The classical song traditions of Western Arnhem Land are amongst the foremost examples of verbal art in the nine endangered languages of the region, but few people are now competent to perform or comment on them. Typically performed in multi-lingual social contexts, song texts demonstrate unusual linguistic features such as mixtures of languages and a high proportion of esoteric and intimate vocabulary. We will collect, transcribe, translate and analyse song texts and discussions about songs by contemporary performers, and where relevant repatriate and document archival recordings, making our research results available to communities via a network of local digital repositories.
Traditional story telling in sand, known as tyepetye in (A) languages, is often accompanied by 'singing' or a vocal style which could be called 'parlando'. Some of these are more 'song like' and thus less 'parlando' than others.
