Soundscapes by Dr. Rath
Dr. Richard Rath has kindly shared some of his amazing soundscapes, including this piece which was one of several performed as part of the Presidential panel at the AHA in 2010. Recorded in his studio, the piece is a reconstruction of the music of enslaved Africans in seventeenth century Jamaica - a fascinating and unique way to look at -- and listen to -- history.
