Reel to Real: Giving the Pitt Rivers Museum’s Sound Collections a Voice

14 May

‘Reel to Real: Giving the Pitt Rivers Museum’s Sound Collections a Voice’ is a great project that Huw told me about.

‘No human sense is more neglected in ethnographic museums than sound. This project will make available for the widest use, both in and beyond the museum space itself, the important soundcollections of the Pitt Rivers Museum. Hundreds of hours of historically important and rare ethnographic sound, donated to the Museum since the early twentieth century, are currently held in storage, known only to a handful of scholars.’ ‘Reel to Real: Giving the Pitt Rivers Museum’s Sound Collections a Voice’

Really excited about meeting up with him this week in London to listen to the Manchester Museum and John Rylands Library soundscapes.
