My Field Recordings

The Future - Film and Sound archives from my collection


Oldest Korean Sanjo recordings by Shim Sang-gun

Okinawan Music I have been quite involved with Okinawan music. In vain I have waited to see some recorded examples made available here. Even on my last trip to Japan in Fall 1999, I could find little available. I am putting here some MP3s to enable more people to hear this wonderful music.

Indian Music. Mp3s of old mostly 78s of music of India.


Slovak String Music- Music recorded on old Slovak LPs in the 80s?

Roma Music. A collection of music of the Roma (Gypsies) from various places in Europe

Romanian Music. A site containing MP3 files of several recordings of Romanian folk music

Romica Puceanu, Romanian Gypsy Singer with several MP3 files of her singing.

Albanian Music. I have just put up MP3 files of my collection of old 78s of music of Albania.


Music of Venezuela. Venezuelan harp music by Juan Vicente Torrealba from an old LP.

Nicolas Sosa One of the former famous harpists of the Veracruz Jarocho style of Mexico

Lament on the Death of Diplo A rare recording by some friends on the death of the radio and television personality, Diplo of Puerto Rico.



Recommended Recordings. Many people ask me about good recordings that are still available. Here are some recent ones that I think are worth hearing.

MIDI Page I have been using MIDI in various ways to illustrate ideas, but I have also been just doing some fooling around.
