Seattle Sounds: Welcome

Seattle Sounds aims to preserve, promote, and share deep archival cuts from the city and region's many musics and sounds.


The Seattle Sounds Archiving Project (SSAP) preserves a cross section of Seattle and Puget Sound area music. First established in 2008, SSAP also provides researchers, scholars, and fans with access to a selection of these published and unpublished recordings. In conjunction with this, the project's curator offers a course on the history of Seattle area music. To learn more about the collections or the course, browse the pages on this guide. If you have questions, contact the curator.
