En 78’er – så sødt som i gamle dage

14. august 2020

The 78 Project is a documentary and recording journey inspired by Alan Lomax and his quest to capture music where it lived throughout the early 20th century. Our project brings the spirit of his work into the present as we pair breakthrough musicians with the songs and the fascinating recording technology of the past. With just one microphone, one authentic 1930’s Presto direct-to-acetate disk recorder, and one blank lacquer disc, musicians are given one take to cut a record anywhere they choose. What we have found is that the film, music and feelings that result defy space and time, living music inspired by ghosts. [www.the78project.com]

Jeg har før fortalt om Alan Lomax og hans bestræbelse på at opsamle den gamle amerikanske musiktraditon for eftertiden. Ånden fra Lomax lever stadigvæk, fx i projektet the78project.
