Open Music Archive is a collaborative
project, initiated by artists Eileen Simpson and Ben White, to source, digitise and distribute out-of-copyright sound
recordings. The archive aims to distribute these recordings freely, form a site of exchange of knowledge and material, and be a vehicle for future collaborations and distributed projects.
