  Erich von Hornbostel   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Erich Moritz von Hornbostel (February 25, 1877 - November 28, 1935) was an Austrian ethnomusicologist and scholar of music.
Hornbostel was born in Vienna into a musical family.
Hornbostel also argued that music should be a part of more general anthropological research.

He was singing into the horned mouth of an Edison phonograph that took his song and wrote it into a sheet of wax wrapped around a rotating cylinder.
But von Luschan’s efforts to capture Ali’s song in totality failed; clouding Ali’s voice was an unexpected, incidental instrument: the phonograph itself, which produced waves of thick static hiss.
Von Luschan’s recording was one of the first stored in the Berlin Phonogramm-Archiv, and it’s included in the archive’s new four-CD anthology Music!

 Classifying Musical Instruments   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The other way, first published in 1914 by Erich von Hornbostel and Curt Sachs, is to group instruments according to how their sounds are produced.
The orchestral classification of instruments is useful in the setting of traditional Western classical and art music, but it is a very general classification that doesn't cover many of the world's instruments.
All the strings are bowed lutes (except for the harp - a harp - and the piano - a struck zither).

 Curt Sachs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He was one of the founders of modern organology (the study of musical instruments), and is probably best remembered today for co-authoring the Sachs-Hornbostel scheme of musical instrument classification with Erich von Hornbostel.
In 1913, Sachs saw the publication of his book Real-Lexicon der Musikinstrumente, probably the most comprehensive survey of musical instruments in 200 years.
In 1914 he and Erich Moritz von Hornbostel published the work for which they are probably now best known in Zeitschrift für Ethnologie, a new system of musical instrument classification.

 Hornbostel, Erich Moritz von --  Britannica Concise Encyclopedia - The online encyclopedia you can trust!
He became assistant to Stumpf at the Psychological Institute, and, when its archives became the foundation of the Berlin Phonogramm-Archiv in 1906, Hornbostel was named its first director, a post he held until he was dismissed in 1933 by the Nazi regime.
Hornbostel was coeditor (with Stumpf) of the Sammelbände für vergleichende Musikwissenschaft (“Collected Volumes for Comparative Musicology”) from 1922 until his death.
Hornbostel also demonstrated the importance of observable, measurable musicological data to ethnological research.

He was the curator of the musical instrument collection of the conservatoire in Brussels, and for the 1888 catalogue of the collection divided instruments into four groups: strings, winds, drums, and other percussion.
This scheme was later taken up by Erich von Hornbostel and Curt Sachs who published an extensive new scheme for classication in Zeitschrift fýr Ethnologie in 1914.
Hornbostel and Sachs' criterion for determining which sub-group an instrument falls into is that if the resonator can be removed without destroying the instrument, then it is classified as 31.

 Nomination Form: UNESCO-CI
The first field recordings coming into the Phonogramm-Archiv were made in 1902 by Felix von Luschan, the director of the Berlin Ethnographical Museum, during an expedition to Turkey, and by the linguist and africanist Carl Meinhof in East Africa (today named Tanzania).
It was thanks to Erich Stockmann that the cylinders as well as 1383 shellac discs from the old stock of records were kept as well as possible.
As a result of the very harmonious German-German cooperation between Erich Stockmann on the one side and Kurt Reinhard and Dieter Christensen on the other, a quite effective exchange programme was established with the aim of copying the cylinders.

 Superpelog tuning   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
It's a combination of two pelog approximations described by Erich von Hornbostel, extended to 14 steps to allow for modulation between keys.
But since there's no one standard for pelog tunings, these numbers can be varied as desired to create a variety of pelog-like scales.
Von Hornbostel's "type a" tuning (in the Scala archive as "pelog_pa.scl") has a generator of 522.0 cents, which when split in half results in a 261.0 cent generator for superpelog tuning (the same as the generator of his "type b" pelog tuning, "pelog_pb.scl").

 Calling a Fiddle a Lute: The Hornbostel-Sachs System for the Classification of Musical Instruments   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
And when you take into consideration the fact that the name of each and every instrument may vary from place to place, people to people, musician to musician, the study and documentation of musical instruments can be exercises in frustration.
In the introduction to their article Systematik der Musikinstrumente (Zeitschrift für Ethnologie, 1914), Hornbostel and Sachs recognized that instruments "are alive and dynamic, indifferent to sharp demarcation and set form, while systems are static and depend upon sharply drawn demarcations and categories."
Hornbostel and Sachs proposed a more flexible modular framework that would allow for "open-ended discussion" and future updating.
