Bamboo AngklungColin McPhee (1900-1964) was a Canadian composer and a scholar. He is remembered mainly for his compositions, from which – well in advance of its time – emerge strong influences of non-Western music and, in particular, of Bali and Java. In fact, Mc Phee, can be considered one of the first musicians to have studied in an ethnomusicology key musical productions of those regions, as part of a research perspective that today is even more important, especially in relation to the complex network of the so-called world music.

McPhee has also taught composition and ethnomusicology in the Department of Music at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), 1960 to 1964, the year of his death. Here, in the archives of ethnomusicology, is deposited his collection, which, besides containing materials on the music of Bali and Java, consists of important documents both on historical and content. Among these is, for example, much correspondence with scholars, anthropologists, ethnomusicologists and musicians, such as Margaret Mead, Jaap Kunst, Henry Cowell and others. As well as, materials and documents related to his research, writings, compositions, musical manuscripts, audio and video recordings, photographs, etc. From here you can access the page dedicated to the collection in the OAC (Online Archive California).
