Title:DB2-003
Bibliographic Citation:Bickerton, Derek; 1968-07-17; Label says Creole 2. Tape contains two tracks: 1 (file name DB2-003-A) and 2 (file name DB2-003-B). It seems that each track may be comprised of a recording from a cassette tape, meaning that this reel-to-reel tape contains audio from two different cassette tapes. Together the tracks contain interviews with various subjects about a range of topics. Multiple speakers, but no names given. Multiple unnamed co-interviewers as well. These topics include family life, local relationships and religion, courtship and marriage, rice cultivation, recipes, songs, local politics, and more. Tape has some sound quality issues, which includes the sound dropping out and lots of sporadic noise resulting from moving microphones. Side 2 also has sporadic sound problems from wind, traffic, background conversation, and sound distortion. Tape was digitized at a sample rate of 192,000Hz, but then had to be slowed to 144,000Hz to achieve the proper playback speed.; Emitape 5.75-inch reel-to-reel tape; Kaipuleohone University of Hawai'i Digital Language Archive;http://hdl.handle.net/10125/40829.
