British Library puts massive sound archive online

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

More than 23 000 sound recordings from all over the world have become available to the public for free from a new initiative by the British Library. There is “World and traditional music”, “oral history”, “accents and dialects”, “environment and nature” amongst the many many categories available on the website. This is said to be the most diverse library of sounds from around the world. From a presentation to the Gaurdian: “There are Geordies banging spoons, Tawang lamas blowing conch shell trumpets and Tongan tribesman playing nose flutes. And then there is the Assamese woodworm feasting on a window frame in the dead of night.”
