African-American fife & drum bands, recorded 1942-1970, by artists who include Othar "Otha" Turner, Napoleon Strickland and Sid Hemphill. The roots of this music go back to the bedrock of North American folk, combining British and early-American melodic and marching traditions with African percussion and syncopation.

RADIO SERIES

A series of programs produced by the composer Elliott Sharp from his own collection of works that have influenced, energized, or otherwise occupied his earspace and imagination; from African chanting to Japanese noise to avant-garde concert music. Many of the segments were assembled for the former radio station of P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (now MoMA/PS1) between 2004 and 2006.
