Skjellakkprosjektet

Skjellakkprosjektet er navnet på Musikkhøgskolens arbeid med å samle norske musikeres innspillinger innenfor tidsrommet mellom ca 1900 og ca 1950.

This opens up a large and basically untouched research field concerning Norwegian artists, their careers and their interpretations.

Shellac was, of course, an important ingredient in most records from this period, but the project is not limited to any specific sound carrier. A better definition of its scope might be that it encompasses any recordings made without use of magnetic tape; that is to say brief, but “real” sound images, without any possibilities of editing the result.
