My name is Eduardo Espadas Arrate, this collection features algorithmic piano music mixed with sound frequencies. The idea is based upon the principle of resonance. If you strike a tunning fork near a group of forks, which include one attuned in that frequency, the later will vibrate in response.

Bruce Lyall, the proprietor of the Haight Street Recycled Records , has been a good friend of the Internet Archive always giving LP’s, 78’s, and CD’s to us as we have needed test records. He has even introduced us to others that have been de-accessioning their collections. Visit the archive.org Recycled Records collection .

Even if I am a collector of "serious" opera recordings on 78 rpm, I am also much faszinated of the diversity of genres and discoveries you can make in the field of popular music recordings. In addition to my collection&nbsp; Emilio's 78 Heritage I will give here an overlook over the many facets and genres of recorded "popular" sound and music since the beginning of sound recording to the end of the shellack era in the 1950ies. It also includes much about operetta, which...

Music, in all its forms, has long been a part of the domestic, religious, and social life of the Slovenes. With the spread of Christianity in the 5th century, liturgical hymns were introduced in the region they later inhabited. Secular songs can be traced back to the 9th century.
