“Letter” from Attinasi

Content description The tape consists of three parts:
1) Attinasi records his "letter" in half-track mono on a half-track Uher 4000 tape recorder he got from Columbia University.
2) Attinasi continues his letter (in stereo) on the same quarter-track Uher tape recorder that he took into the field so as to demonstrate the difference in quality between the two machines.
3) This is an excerpt of a (unidentified) field recording Attinasi made of a native Chol speaker. (It is not clear whether the passage is in two-track mono or in stereo.)
