Hundred Years Late is a music archive revival project. Musicians are encouraged to reinterpret the music of 1914, discovering music archives for themselves and finding songs from this era that they would like to cover. This personal act of curation is then followed by the creative act of reinterpreting the song in their own style. Musical contributors are invited to write something (as much or as little as they want) about their creative process and any archival resources that helped them. Of course, non-musicians are invited to contribute as well. Historians, librarians and archivists may have fascinating historical information on the times and places we find ourselves contemplating while taking this journey. Hundred Years Late aims to facilitate engagement, discussion, collaboration and creativity around music archives. Keeping 1914 as our focus for the moment, we can turn this blog into an invaluable resource on music from this era.
