Project At South Coast University Cataloging, Putting Thousands Of Forgotten, And Obscure Pieces Of Music Online

Posted on Monday, March 25, 2013 12:37am

It’s a little known project based on the South Coast, but it’s bringing tens of thousands of obscure, and forgotten pieces of music back to the public.

A team of researchers at UC Santa Barbara is researching, cataloging, and putting recordings from around the world online.

A new grant is allowing the project to add thousands of newly acquired wax cylinders, and 78 rpm disks to the UCSB Library collection.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco has the story.
