Reel to Real Project: Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford
Reel to Real is a project running at the Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford, designed to digitise and deliver the museum's unique ethnographic sound recordings. Please visit the project blog for project updates and emerging content, including a beautiful short professional film of the recent 'sound galleries' event on November 23rd 2012. Curated by noel.lobleyprm.ox.ac.uk (Dr Noel Lobley) and Embedded composer in residence, Nathaniel Mann, a four hour playlist of Bayaka music was programmed, broadcast and streamed live from within darkened galleries as thousands of visitors explored by torchlight. The webcast was watched live in the Central African Republic by a group of Bayaka people who walked for more than an hour to get to a satellite phone in the WWF office in Bayanga.
