Scope and Content

This class consists of material recorded by or for Peter Slade concerning his work. It consists of records, reel-to-reel sound tapes, audio cassettes, film and video; most serve to illustrate his methods in some way. Although the media is a little unstable, these remain fascinating artefacts in their own right, and some retain Slade's handwritten notes on their contents.

Alternative Form Available

All the sound recordings have been transferred to compact audio cassettes by the North West Sound Archive. These will be made available to researchers, rather than the original recordings. A technical catalogue of the recordings, prepared by the NWSA, is available within the Library.
