Географические загадки силлаборитмического варьирования 5-сложников в пределах славяно-балтского раннетрадиционного меломассива

Iryna Klymenko


The object of the study by Ukrainian ethnomusicologist Iryna Klymenko (Iрина Клименко) are 5-complex rhythmic formulas, which are used in ritual melodies of Ukrainians, Belorusians, Poles, Lithuanians. The material for the study was ca. 5.000 melodies of wedding, winter (carols), spring cycles, which contain 5-complex figures. The author studies the differences in the variation of 5-syllabic group, which depends on various factors: from (a) the genre, (b) from the type of the verse formula: monorhythmic V55 or heterotrhythmic V553, V557, etc., (c) from its localization. A large range of rhythmic options is reduced to two key algorithms. The variants are applied to the geographic maps, after which the obtained habitats are compared. By this publication, the author expects to draw the attention of the scientific community to complex typological-geographical plexuses taking place in the large rituals of the song massifs of the Slavic-Baltic early-tradiation melodical massive.

Key words: the Slavic-Baltic early-tradition melodical massive, ritual tunes, wedding songs, carols (kolyadky), arealogy, rhythmic variations, 5-syllabic group.
