Graduate Student Matt Harris, the Fine Arts Fellow at the Center for Southwest Research has spent the academic year working with "The New Mexico Composers Archive. He is working toward his Master of Musical Performance degree.
In this talk he explores the challenges that archivists face in digitizing information so it will be accessible in the future and the opportunity the archive offers scholars who are interested in composers who have strong ties with the university and with New Mexico. Harris says the NM Composers archive is interesting because it contains original baroque materials, and some audio archives. Work from 30 composers is available in the archive.
