Date: May 18, 2022, 3:30PM
Location: Special Research Collections, UCSB Library (3rd Floor, Mountain Side)
Cambodian Vintage Music Archive (CVMA) founders Rotanak (Oro) Oum and Nate Sovannet Hun will speak about the CVMA and their current project to build relationships with surviving families of pre-Khmer Rouge era performers and restore their claims to reproductions of golden era sound recordings.
This event is presented by the UCSB Library, the East Asia Center (EAC), and the Center for the Interdisciplinary Studies of Music (CISM) as part of the CISM in the Archive event series.  Each year, a music scholar is invited into UCSB Library’s Special Research Collections to explore historic sound collections and offer a public talk incorporating research and recordings. This series is designed to highlight the use of archival resources in the interdisciplinary study of music.
