Asch's Folkways Sounds, Live on the Web

Moses Asch spent years collecting and compiling the world's sounds. Working through a number of small record labels including Folkways Recordings, Asch explored a world of sound -- not just music, but birds, bugs and machines. Asch died in 1986. But now the Smithsonian has put his entire collection of sounds on the Web.
