Abstract

This article describes an ongoing archival project intended to recirculate home recordings in Douglastown (Gaspé), Québec. This project stems from the authors’ work on a CD featuring music from those home recordings, and is situated within a larger context of music- and research-based community collaborations. This article proposes a novel reimagining of proactive archiving (Edmondson 2004), founded on principles of dialogic community collaboration in the procurement and description of materials. The authors detail their archival protocol and use ethnographic methods to demonstrate the project’s potential for creating a shared resource for the community and its diaspora.
