Reel Music 32: THE 78 PROJECT MOVIE

The 78 Project Movie

The 78 PROJECT MOVIE is a road trip across America to make one-of-a-kind 78 rpm records with musicians in their hometowns using a 1930s Presto direct-to- disc recorder

—one microphone, one blank disc, one 3-minute take. Along the way, a kaleidoscope of technologists, historians and craftsmen—Grammy- winning producers, 78 collectors, curators from the Library of Congress and Smithsonian—provide insights and history. From Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana to California, folk singers, punk rockers, Gospel and Cajun singers share their lives through intimate performances, and find in that adventure a new connection to our cultural legacy. Take a quick listen to some of the great music they captured at:!


THE 78 PROJECT MOVIE screens Sunday, October 12 at 2pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of the 32nd Reel Music Festival.
Tickets are available online or at the door.
