The Time Machine is designed to take the listener back in time to a Live Music experience in the past. It was inspired by the music and experience of the Grateful Dead.
Although it operates on digital data using a computer, it’s purpose is to conjure up spirits. As such it will do, and not do, many things that seem unusual to users of digital devices.
This project is an homage to all the tapers and collectors and database managers who made and assembled these tapes over the decades, and uploaded them onto the archive. We hope that this box is a fruition of the dream that they collectively worked toward for decades.
While we won’t come between you and your Grateful Dead experience, we will make one plea right now: Please Donate To Archive.org. You know it’s the right thing to do, so let’s leave it at that.
