Speaking from ethnomusicological standpoint, this paper elaborates the use of recorded sound and audiovisual material for the purpose of documenting particular musical elements in Serbia according to the concept of UNESCO intangible cultural heritage. There is difference between contemporary field recording for the archive according to ICH concept, and the employment of already recorded historical legacy. On the example of music elements from Serbian national register of ICH, this paper will rise the questions of ethnomusicological politics of field recording and digitization of archived historical recordings, but it will also analyze the politics of heritage management in this theme. Based on ethnomusicological and archival experience, the aim of this paper is to offer the model of application of sound archive in future which can effectively contribute to the concept of intangible cultural heritage in Serbia.
