The Alan Lomax Database
The Alan Lomax Database is a free multimedia catalog of the audio and video recordings and photographs made by Alan Lomax from 1946 to 1994, and by some of his colleagues, and of Lomax’s comparative research on world music and dance. It will also include one or two older collections of audio recordings made by Lomax on behalf of the Library of Congress, which have been transferred and remastered using current technology. The Database is designed to be a complete record of Lomax’s documentation of music and the spoken word and thus includes imperfect and incomplete items. Every audio recording in the catalog can be heard in samples of forty seconds to two minutes.
