Oral History of American Music Collections Guide: News

New from OHAM


In celebration of OHAM at 50, we asked various composers, including students, faculty, and friends, to create pieces using OHAM recordings as source material. In some cases, composers created their own video component, and in others pieces were matched with video artists through CCAM (the Center for Colaborative Arts and Media at Yale).

An ongoing series of Zoom interviews with composers and musicians, focusing on their personal and creative lives while isolating during the current COVID-19 outbreak.
