John Levy Archive (Scottish Studies)

The John Levy Archive is a primary ethnomusicological resource of international importance, and is held in the Sound Archive of the School of Scottish Studies. It consists of nearly 700 original field recordings of music from various parts of the world, several thousand photographs, and about 20 cine films. There is also Levy's personal collection of approximately 400 commercial LP discs (including some he produced himself), books, papers and miscellaneous artefacts, plus some copies of other fieldworkers' recordings. Levy's field recordings, which are generally of excellent quality, were made on a Nagra-S tape recorder between 1958-1972 in India (223 spools), Sri Lanka (55), Bhutan (48), Taiwan (101), China (81), South Korea (34), Iceland (35) and the UK (107). The scope of the recordings is wide, and features the religious musics of these Asian cultures (and related communities in Britain, including Sufi and Sephardic), as well as court musical traditions and indigenous folk musics.

Announcing the publication of FO A RM no. 1, a new magazine dedicated to resonances among diverse mediums. Our first issue presents writings surrounding the subject of utility from a range of approaches including anthropology, experimental poetry, sound theory, and cultural reportage as well as several cross-genre works. As a catalyst in building community, FO A RM seeks to cross thresholds between specializations, mediums and people, to provoke dynamic dialogue. Rather than define our topic, we pursue the radical intersections that occur in an ever-developing landscape. FO A RM actively encounters a place where theory and practice find common ground a junction between the extravagant and the pedestrian.

Thank you for your interest.
