The Berlin Phonogramm-Archive was founded in September 1900 and soon became
an important center of Comparative Musicology. To celebrate this important
anniversary an international conference titled "100 Years Berlin
Phonogramm-Archive: Retrospective, Perspective and Interdisciplinary
Approaches of the Sound Archives of the World" was held from September
27--October 1, 2000, at the Enthnologisches Museum (formerly known as the
Völkerkundemuseum) in Berlin, Germany. More than 60 papers were presented by
archivists and ethnomusicologists from over 30 countries. UCLA was
represented by Daniel Neuman, Anthony Seeger, and Louise Spear.
