Tracing the Mbira Sound Archive in Zimbabwe analyses the revitalisation and repatriation of historical recordings from the largest sound archive in Africa, the International Library of African Music (ILAM). It provides a postcolonial study on the African sound archive divided into three historical periods: the colonial period offers a critical analysis on how ILAM classifies its music through ethnic and linguistic groups; the postcolonial period reconsiders postcolonial nationhood, new/old mobility and cultural border crossing in present Africa; and the recent period of repatriation focuses on the author’s revitalisation of the sound archive. The main goal of this study is to reconsider the colonial demarcations of southern African mbira music provided by the International Library of African Music (ILAM). These mbira recordings reveal that the harmonic system used in different lamellophones (or mbiras) in southern Africa is musically related. The analysis of sound archives in Africa is an essential tool to envision the new ways in which African culture can be directed not only from postcolonial notions of nationhood or Afrocentric discourses but also for the necessity of bringing awareness of the circulation of musical cultures from and beyond colonial African borders.

The Special Operations Executive  SOE  in Burma

In the mountains and jungles of occupied Burma during World War II, British special forces launched a series of secret operations, assisted by parts of the Burmese population. The men of the SOE, trained in sabotage and guerrilla warfare, worked in the jungle, deep behind enemy lines, to frustrate the puppet Burmese government of Ba Maw and continue the fight against Hirohito's Japan in a theatre starved of resources. Here, Richard Duckett uses newly declassified documents from the National Archives to reveal for the first time the extent of British special forces' involvement - from the 1941 operations until beyond Burma's independence from the British Empire in 1948. Duckett argues convincingly that `Operation Character' and `Operation Billet' - large SOE missions launched in support of General Slim's XIV Army offensive to liberate Burma - rank among the most militarily significant of the SOE's secret missions. Featuring a wealth of photographs and accompanying material never before published, including direct testimony recorded by veterans of the campaign and maps from the SOE files, The SOE in Burma tells a compelling story of courage and struggle in during World War II

Sound and video tape archives are becoming increasingly important world-wide. As the commercial and non-commercial production of sound recordings increases, the need for preservation is being recognized in libraries, museums, radio and TV stations and university departments. The growth of interest in oral history and community records adds impetus to this need. This book sets out to explore and explain all the steps involved in setting up and managing a sound archive - acquiring the material, the necessary documentation, storage, and equipment and the need for a conservation programme. It is intended both for those without any formal archive training, but knowledge of sound recordings and those who are knowledgeable about archives, but have little experience of sound recordings.

This alphabetical reference covers the entire spectrum of the recording of sound, from Edison's experimental cylinders to contemporary high technology. The major focus is on the recorded sound industry in the US, with additional material on Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The coverage is particularly strong on the earliest periods of recorded sound history--1877-1948, the 78 rpm era and 1949-1982, the LP era. In addition to performers and their work, entries also cover important commercial organizations, individuals who made significant technical contributions, societies and associations, sound archives and libraries, magazines, catalogs, award winners, technical topics, special and foreign terms, copyright laws, and other areas of interest.
