Internet Archives of Weird Recordings

Post by r05c03 » Wed Dec 18, 2019 8:22 am

Some time ago, I swear I made a post asking about sources of interesting recorded material that I could grabs snippets from and use in music-making. You all did not disappoint. One of the best suggestions was this web-sight that had archives all manner of stuff that mined heavily. I remember there was a lot of William Burroughs, but I mined most heavily from a sort of anthropological spiritual sub-archive that had lots of "Radio Spirt" recordings, seances, and weird chanting.

The problem? I cannot remember the name. Any chance any of you do?

Any other suggestions for aforementioned archived recordings?
