The 78 Project is a documentary journey across America that records today’s musicians as they perform the songs that inspired a century of music—exactly as those works were originally recorded: instantaneously onto 78 RPM lacquer discs. Inspired by folklorist Alan Lomax, The 78 Project celebrates the artistry and craft that captured America’s musical forms of a century ago, exploring the deep historical significance of American folk songs in the process. With just one microphone, one authentic 1930s Presto recorder, and one blank acetate disc, musicians are given a single, three-minute take to cut a 78 RPM record, finding in that adventure a new connection to our cultural legacy.

 

“Wow! I feel like I knew what it’s like to be in Bristol in the 1920s, recording those first Carter Family records. That was time travel.” —Rosanne Cash

“It’s everything I was saying about emotional. It’s a whole other thing.” —Richard Thompson

“New York is buzzing with retro-chic products these days, but few can match the authenticity of a project that aims to bring alive the sound, touch and even smells of recorded music’s first golden period.” —BBC News
