Germany helps Iran digitise thousands of old gramophone records
« on: November 11, 2013, 02:51:41 AM »
Via the BBC:

A Germany university and the Music Museum of Iran have joined forces to digitise 4000 old gramophone records of Iranian songs.

The collaboration came about after an Iranian doctoral candidate in ethnomusicology- who saw how the university had helped preserve some old music collections in Egypt- suggested Iran do the same.

Roja Assadi reports.

It is odd. You don't really think of Iran and music in the same sentence. A little stupid, since they are (in the main) people who like to party. Glad to see this project under way and being successful.
The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.
