For this last major project of his life, Smith recorded everyday sounds ranging from a faucet drip, to the wind, to the sound of traffic, to a rock music performance -- auditory snapshots that comprise a portrait of Smith's life in the city. Also in this series are recordings of Smith's lectures on ethnographic and art historical themes, interviews with Smith, and assorted collected recordings. From 1991 on, recordings are by the Harry Smith Archives, and include concerts, symposia and conferences, and selected or reformatted Smith recordings.
Arrangement
Lectures, interviews, collected recordings, and recordings of the Harry Smith Archives are arranged in chronological order. Smith's audio work Materials for the Study of Religion and Culture in the Lower East Side or Movies for Blind People, is separate from the other recordings and is arranged in chronological order by the date that Smith assigned to each cassette. Note that while a given cassette may contain several recordings, only one title is listed for each cassette.
