Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Performers: Anzonini del Puerto (of Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain) (aka Manuel Bermudez), vocal, "tabla," palmas, dance (the "tabla" is not normally used; it's a flat wooden tray about 2' in diameter which Anzonini wanted to use); Gary Hayes (Seattle), guitar.

Originally recorded on cassette (2 90-minute tapes); microphone part of tape deck; recorded at distance of about 20'; audience of about 30, including Jim Kuhn, Pat Darrow, and others (same group had been at the film session at UW earlier in the day).

Performance includes: bulerias, soleares, siguiriya, tangos, rumbas, sevillanas, fandango, and tarantos.

The transfer from cassette to reel was done in the UW Ethnomusicology Archives with an auto-correlator (to reduce tape hiss) and equalizer (drops out 0-50 Hz range setting to -9; this reduces bass thump)

Digital files created from analog reels 12/2014 - 79-35.1.wav (45:19), 79-35.2.wav (38:35), 79-35.3.wav (46:47), 79-35.4.wav (1:36) (48 kHz, 24-bit)
