Harry Bertoia Archival Tape Project

We have a Kickstarter project going to transfer the 350+ reel-to-reel Sonambient tapes to electronic format. It is a huge undertaking, but with your support to purchase the proper equipment, we can save these recordings. They have been sitting in the renovated Pennsylvania barn for 45 years collecting spiderwebs, but if we act now we can save them! Harry Bertoia created eleven Sonambient albums before he died and these are being re-issued in May in a beautiful box set. To help, or just see what is going on, check:
