#recorddet interviewees Kim Silarksi, Doug Commbe, and DJ Cent.
In the summer of 2013, Detroit Sound Conservancy conducted a successful Kickstarter project to start a Detroit music oral history project online. When we began, there was no public oral history archive dedicated solely to Detroit music. Kickstarter funds were used to digitize and conserve oral history interviews that already exist in the private hands of Detroit music journalists. The overall budget for the initial project was $5,000. These tapes reinforce the richness of the sonic history we already know. These tapes also tell us musical stories we have never heard.
You can learn more about the project here.
