| Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project|
Cylinder recordings, the first commercially produced sound recordings, are a snapshot of musical and popular culture in the decades around the turn of the 20th century. They have long held the fascination of collectors and have presented challenges for playback and preservation by archives and collectors alike.
With funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the UCSB Libraries have created a digital collection of over 6,000 cylinder recordings held by the Department of Special Collections. In an effort to bring these recordings to a wider audience, they can be freely downloaded or streamed online.
| Music Resources for Educators|
Throughout history music has been a part of societies that were considered advanced, and those that were seen as more primitive. It has been used to express joy and sorrow, for celebration and ceremonies, and also as a means of healing and relaxation. Music has also influenced generations of people and helped shape the behavior and thoughts of generations. This can clearly be seen in more modern times, like the 60s and the 70s. In schools, music can have an all around positive impact on students in both their personal lives and in their studies. It can help them with their focus, and also help keep them occupied and away from negative influences, such as drugs or crime. As a result, music and music teachers are an important part of education and the continued appreciation of music.
| Musician War|
Musician War is an online music competition and community
of musicians. Members post mp3s of their own playing,
which are then matched up in two-person contests based on
instrument, genre, etc. Everybody votes on which entry
is better and comments on what might improve each entry.
We find this a great way to motivate and improve.
Musician War members are exceptionally close-knit.
Many have been members for years. We have annual
get-togethers in the USA, as well as in Australia, UK
