First we had people writing the words of songs down. Then we had music notation. Then we had audio recording. Then we had video. Now...

the cultural heritage of smells

Didn't you always want to know what the people who sang for Bartok and Cecil Sharp smelt like?

(If you've played a flute that's been owned by a chainsmoker you'll know what the recordings leave out...)

... deep-frozen folk singers for future reasearch? To be unfrozen for one interview and concert every decade?

The latest state-of-the art-media storage and as much online as possible.

The next frontier is figuring out a way to prevent copyright claims from interfering with the preservation of folk songs and other interesting-but-not-marketable pieces of music and literature.

I have a wonderful library of folk songbooks and information, but what happens to it when I go to the Other Shore? Is there a copy of all this good stuff preserved somewhere, or does it all go to the dump?

I have a similar collection of LPs, CDs, tapes and books and magazines covering the last city/sixty years. If I could just clear away the accumulated stuff that surrounds it, somebody else might be able to appreciate it enough to NOT send it to the dump!

I was looking forward to hearing "The Other Shore", but it won't play on this side. That's kinda counter-intuitive (and unfair)!
