The Internet Archive will soon be home to hundreds of thousands of audio recordings that would otherwise be lost forever.
Zoë Beery: So, the original set of records that started this project off came from the Internet Archive itself. Since they’re known for hosting so much old stuff, the guy who founded it, Brewster Kahle, has just slowly accumulated 78s over the years, from museums, libraries, collectors, anybody who has it and is like, “Oh, they like old stuff. Maybe I’ll give it to him!”
- The Great 78 Project — a partnership with New York’s Archive of Contemporary Music and the Internet Archive.
- What is the function of music? — “I feel like I should have a really good answer for this, but somehow I also feel that the question is wrong.”
- Extended score for Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan… new on vinyl!
