Description

The Swiss Foundation Public Domain is a charitable foundation specialized in the conservation and utilization of public domain music and film material. Its archives include over 50,000 78 rpm gramophone records and phonograph cylinders with mainly classical music and jazz recordings. Since 2009, the gramophone records are being digitized as part of the “Public Domain Project”; works for which copyright has expired are made available on Wikimedia Commons. Since 2014 the Swiss Foundation Public Domain has a branch in Montevideo, Uruguay, which digitizes mainly Argentinian and Uruguayian folk music, motion pictures and historical books.
