October is American Archives Month!

American Archives Month was started in 1969 by the Michigan State University Archives & Historical Collections[1] to raise awareness about local archives and their importance. Find out if there are archives in your area in this listing that are participating. In the age of digital and networked technologies, archiving has taken a lot of twists and turns, not the least of which has been to bring a lot of resources to anyone with an Internet connection!

The Free Music Archive is just one of many repositories for audio recordings. You may know about others, including Jamendo and ccMixter, which are both part of the Creative Commons web community, or the vast array of stuff in the Internet Archive or the less-musical files at Freesound

A fun place to explore is the Wax Cylinder Preservation & Digitization Project, which has content that was pressed onto wax cylinders, the first commercially available recording format, which was replaced by the flat phonograph record before 1920[2]

Do you have a favorite archive online (or offline)? Post it in the comments!

Ahoy!

My buddy Joel and I are already taking the nautical theme too far.

Friends, Romans, FMA'liens:

Hi! I'm excited to be at the helm of this Really Big Ship as the freshly-minted Director of the Free Music Archive. That said, I'm brand new, so bear with me if things are a little wonky while I get my sea legs. A little about me: I'm Cheyenne. I'm from Kentucky. I'm a librarian and zine writer (mostly about karaoke), and I've been involved with College & independent radio projects for many years, including Lexington, KY's beloved WRFL 88.1 and Bowling Green, KY's WWHR 91.7, where I cut my College-Radio baby teeth. 

I'm excited to be working with so many musicians, curators, labels, and cool people in general - and to be a proponent of Creative Commons, which is helping to redefine music and art in the digital age. So glad you're here - say hi, and get in touch. I look forward to working with y'all!

I'll sign off with a track by Protomartyr, who recently appeared at the Cropped Out music fest:
