Critiquing Clare as a polyverse—an audiotopic site where longue durée cultural flows and cross-currents intersected, were indigenized, and were redirected back again into outbound flows—this chapter examines the process of documenting Clare’s musical past: the collectors, broadcasters, and filmmakers who archived its soundscape since the nineteenth century. It deploys Arjun Appadurai’s “scapes” theory—ethnoscapes, ideoscapes, mediascapes, technoscapes, and financescapes—to frame a broad historical and ethnomusicological synthesis and to accentuate the symbiosis between place and memory that informs the complex lifeworlds of traditional musicians in Clare.

Keywords:   ethnoscapes, ideoscapes, mediascapes, technoscapes, financescapes, longue durée, space-place, sonic archive, polyverse, collectors
