Abstract: The text examines the approaches to ethnomusicological field research, according to the methods of documenting and archiving empirical materials. The peculiarities of recording folklore samples are the result of preliminary specialized music-theoretical training. The main help in this regard are the technologies for sound recording, video recording and their development. In the modern ethnomusicological field (from the middle of the XX century until today) the technical means and the opportunities they provide are of decisive importance for the methods and the formation of research points of view.

Keywords: Ethnomusicological Terrain; Archiving; Sound Recording; Video Recording.
