Reel to Real
is an archival sound website at the Pitt Rivers Museum, funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation Collections Fund. From the songs of children's games in playgrounds across Europe to Bayaka women's songs that enter people's dreams in the rainforests of the Central African Republic, this website
offers an introduction to the several thousand hours of archival sounds held by the Museum. It also includes information about the field recordists, their related collections, and a host of other resources such as films and the work of contemporary sound artists associated with the project. Users can read about the methods used to digitize hundreds of wax cylinders, reel to reel tapes, audio cassettes and other formats that form the Museum's ethnographic sound archive. Also included are examples of the practical outputs that have been developed in order to connect archival sounds with wider collections and people. See further details on the project
